Volume 14, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1011-3487



The problems associated with educational disparity in Nigeria are such that there is current fear that it could lead to disintegration particularly as it has threatened the peaceful coexistence of the nation before now. The Federal Government of Nigeria, in realisation of the possible danger educational disparity could constitute to peace, took measures to ensure educational parity. One of such is the Nomadic Education. This article employs evaluative approach in evaluating nomadic education scheme, to determine whether it was actually compensatory. The article concludes that although the scheme is helping the Fulani nomads to "come out of the dark", the programme should cover all the nomads in Nigeria.
