ADDRESS BY PROF. O. C. NWANA DURING THE FIRST SOUTH-EAST EDUCATION SUMMIT ORGANIZED BY THE CONSULTATIVE FORUM OF VICE-CHANCELLORS OF SOUTH-EAST UNIVERSITIES (THE STATE OF EDUCATIONAL VALUES IN THE SOUTH-EASTERN ZONE OF NIGERIA)

AUTHOR: PROF O.C. NWANA

AFFILIATION: ABIA STATE UNIVERSITY, UTURU- ABIA STATE   

 The concept of educational values can be treated from a variety of perspectives. One view would consider the value placed on education through a treatment of what can be regarded as the aims, goals, and objectives of education. This treatment would lead one into the philosophical issues of what education is greatest worth for the South-Eastern zone of Nigeria in particular, and Nigeria in general. Another view would consider a variety of inputs, transactions, and outputs of the educational system and thereafter extract indices of whether or not the system is performing well either in absolute terms or in relative terms in the South-Eastern zone of Nigeria. Judging by the varied disputations regarding the so-called falling standards of education in the South-Eastern zone and elsewhere in the entire country, and the fact that some other lead papers at this summit will treat social, religious, and ethical issues, it is considered that the second perspective of values, namely a consideration of inputs, transactions, and outputs would be more appropriate for this presentation. Within this context, the paper will present an array of statistical tables regarding the state of education in the South Eastern zone of Nigeria, and from these extract interpretations of the value of education in the zone.
