Charles Ngozi Ugwuegbulam, Helen Ijeoma Ugwuegbulam

Abstract


The millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are goals the world wants to achieve. Each country is striving to achieve the eight goals but the extent and rate at which they are going about it differs. Most countries leave the pursuit of the goals to their government. In Nigeria, the story is not too different. Nigeria has made some visible and notable strides toward the achievement of the MDG goals yet there are still much to be done. Since education is an instrument for national development in Nigeria, it is the intention of this paper to view how the college of education system can contribute to the achievement of the MDGs. In doing this, the MDGs were identified and those that are amenable to be achieved through the college of Education system were briefly discussed, pointing out the available resources and the add-ons that could help to achieve the goals.
