FOLLOWING EDUCATION FUNDS IN NIGERIA
Education Tracker
With about US$16 billion spent on education by international aid organizations and millions of Naira from government spending, the quality of basic education in Nigeria is still extremely poor due to lack of accountability and transparency, leading to low demand and unacceptably low academic performance. While education indicators are poor nationwide, the greatest need for assistance is in the predominantly Muslim north, and the Follow The Money team is tracking the implementation of budget (monitoring service delivery) in education institutions in Nigeria
