Nigerian Students Rejected by Government Schools
The Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria has destroyed so many lives. Students have been restricted from attending schools and citizens have been forced to flee their homes because they are not safe. According to this piece
, students displaced by Boko Haram have been denied access to education by the federal government. Government schools have rejected them because they lack the necessary documents for admission. Many students have no school to attend or a job.
I strongly believe that under no circumstances should a person be denied access to education. That is, if students displaced by Boko Haram don't have requested documents, that alone is not enough to deny them their educational rights. After all, the students are not responsible for their misfortune. Rather, the government must take responsibility for failing to deter this group from the onset.
