EDUCATION AS A WEALTH CREATION TOOL IN EKITI Our plan is to provide functional and sustainable Education We believe that Education will not just be for learning but for enlightenment and enterprise Entrepreneurship will be incorporated to our curriculum from Secondary Schools to Tertiary Institutions. Encourage our researchers to proactively seek for grants and scholarships to carry out research in their institutions To attract funding with laudable projects in Schools.
EDUCATION TOURISM EDUCATION = WEALTH Education increases the earning capacity of individuals A compelling body of research links primary and secondary education to economic development and growth. This research recognizes people as a type of economic asset – “human capital” – and shows that increased investment in health, skills, and knowledge provides future returns to the economy through: increases in labor productivity. Education increases workers’ average earnings and productivity, and it also reduces the incidence of social problems such as drug abuse, crime, welfare dependency, and lack of access to medical care, all of which can weigh heavily on the economy.
EDUCATION = WEALTH Lifelong learning has literally become the new infrastructure of our knowledge-based economy. Education, as infrastructure, means that we must be willing to see our schools, colleges and universities as key players in economic development—because of the talent they create, the research they conduct, and the new knowledge they produce. It is partly from research and innovation that new companies are born, new ideas are birthed and new jobs are created. Indeed, research and innovation help to drive economic expansion and the creation of new wealth.
