The paper addresses the disparities in the educational landscape of Nigeria through contrasting the current realities of funding against the needs of education from pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary needs of the educational sector in Nigeria. Building on existing studies, the paper contends that there are gaps that have led to the sad decline of quality in education. Issues such as adequate educational facilities, truncated policy implementation, funding, inadequate infrastructure, quality of teaching and research, pedagogy and current demands for up to date curriculum to meet the demands of the market, student attitudes and motivation, digitalization and other factors have affected the educational system in Nigeria. The paper concludes that there is a need for sustained funding, quality policy design and implementation and commitment to challenging the status quo in order to effectively deliver quality education.
