Nigeria, officially the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a constitutional republic found in West Africa. It shares borders with the Republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north, the country is made up of 36 states and its Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Providing free, government supported education, Nigeria's educational system is made up of six years of primary school, three years of junior secondary school, and three years of senior secondary school. A student may also take a further four years of university education, leading to a bachelor's degree.

In 2004, the Nigerian National Planning Commission described the country's education system as 'dysfunctional', due to decaying institutions and ill-prepared graduates.

After the Second World War, developed countries started a foreign aid program, to help developing countries construct and restore their educational, health and agricultural systems.

Introducing formal educational plans, it was hoped that a set framework would direct policies, and utilize a nations limited amount of resources.

Unfortunately, educational planning in Nigeria and other developing countries has faced a number of problems. Economic instability means a fluctuating budget is allocated to programs of education. Which has a negative effect on a number of areas including, the quality, supply and demand for teachers, and the funding of new, improved and innovative schools.
