4. The first way out is going to be how the general public and government should have a steady political environment to enable educational policies stay for some time before changes are done

The federal, State and Local government should provide adequate fund to the

educational sector

When planning or formulating policies, teacher who are the implementer should be involved.

When there is any change or intended change, all the stakeholders should be informed.

Corruption should be stop in all our educational institution in Nigeria.
