U-15 not ripe to leave secondary school – Expert

Under 15 secondary school leavers are ill-equipped to cope with social and psychological pressures associated with after school life, an educationist, Mrs Anastasia Okobi, said on Friday.

“Under-15 young people still need to be tutored, guided and cultivated in many aspects of adult life.

“They are still not mature enough to deal with relationship issues with the opposite sex, and independence that after school life brings.

 “It is worse-off if an early school leaver gets admission into university; he or she easily can derail from the objective of the admission due to immaturity,’’ Okobi said.

The retired Deputy Director in the Lagos State Teaching Service said that many Nigerian students were in classes not appropriate for their ages.
