NIGERIA EDUCATION REFORM BEST BET.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONCLUSIONS;
Bearing in mind, the fact that aptitude and interest frequently do not go together. That development of ability depends on the structure of school system. We are recommending that our state Ministry of Education ensure olden days school system. Where schools specialize for developing some kind of aptitudes. Are repackaged and instituionalize in secondary school levels. Examples technical schools instituted for spatial ability and abstract reasoning ability pupils. Grammar schools for simple verbal ability and verbal logical ability pupils. Sports academies for mechanical and numeric ability pupils. Science schools for data checking ability pupils, etc.
They also ensure that in all basic schools and tertiary scholls, groups or clubs are not only made compulsory, but effort be made they are functioning; that every student is a participating member of one of them.
Our reasons being that we have process, that have prove effective in solving aptitude selections, even in kids. You will recall this selection issue is reason, old education system was scrapped, and this comprehensive system of education institutionalize, with all its limitations
Moreso evidences have prove that education attainment and interactions is dependent upon temperaments, industriousness, parental encouragement, parental support, quality of teaching, general intelligence and above all SPECIAL ABILITIES.

In Nigeria has to be oriented towards self-realization, better human relationship, individual an d national efficiency, effective citizenship, national consciousness, national unity, as well as towards social, cultural, economic, political, scientific, and technological progress, (FRN,1981). Thus, to attain the above, reducing illiteracy level among people of all ages, in Nigeria becomes sine-qua-non. In other words, the govt. must provide true education. Which is “not only the pursuit of certain courses of study. But the harmonious and wholesome development of the physical, the mental and the spiritual powers.

FACTORS IMPORTANT TO BE NOTED;
1. PUPIL FACTOR; The very early years of life. Up to the pre-adolescent years are irreplacedly. Important in the formation of the child's personality. Hence the need to observe and recognize potentialities and interest as soon as. The child leaves home to start formal education. The problems associated with the developmental stage.

2. The teacher faSctor; the enrolment of pupils has resulted. In additional work. For the teachers. In the past, teacher combined teaching assignment. With advice giving. But with continous upsurge in pupils enrolment. Most teachers find it impossibly difficult. To cope with pupils demand. Consequently, the professional services of psychological counselors.

Identifies pupils with special needs. And make necessary referral.
3. The parental factor; the rapid social and economic changes. In Nigeria have made some parents. Pursue material wealth. At the expense of providing good care.
