It’s not a good commentary to note that only 2 African Countries could produce world class University (South Africa and Egypt)!
The top criterial for the ranking are:
1. Innovation
2. Teaching
3. Employability
Are these criterial lacking in African Countries? The answer may not be Yes, but they are likely outdated.
We need to catch up with the rest of the world, so that our children will not end up serving their colleagues in the other parts of the world or their African colleague who were able to study outside their continent.
It is time to stamp out the unpleasant phrase “Fresh Graduates are unemployable” from our educational system. How do we do that? Simply by toeing the path of greatness chart and followed by the top countries of the world. Right education has always been the pathfinder to greater success.
Technology is an essential aid to right education. This is where Microsoft 365 Education becomes vital to the development of Education in our dear African continent.
