If I have to start all over again, I will blame the government with it corrupts system of who-do-you-know before a graduate can get a good job for himself. I’ll points my accusing hand towards the private organisations for demanding unreasonable years of experience from fresh graduates before they can be employed. I will blame all of them, yes, because I don’t see the reason why they would demand ten years of experience from a fresh graduate! How would he gain that if not from somewhere? This is disheartening and frustrating to hear or see our graduates pass through this all day long. The demands are getting too serious, many are tired of waiting at home for their calls. Many graduates have committed suicide because of this. How could a country be this weak and frustrating? When is this nightmare going to end? 
I will still blame the teachers that told us that great job opportunities await us if we study very hard to get good grades in school. I’ll blame the lecturers for tormenting us with old formula, theories, principles that are not applicable in this contemporary time. We’ll keep living this life of blaming the failed systems of our education and blaming others for the faulty of our dreams if we don’t really take action from this phase and understand that the reality of life is beyond the four walls of school system. Life is beyond what they taught us in school. Good grades can not give us good life or a successful life but digging deeper into the idea that comes out from us can. Why would having a degree makes you lose sense of the things you can do? Why would going to school makes you a dependant of Certificates printed on paper? 
It’s not he that came out first in class or he that graduated with First Class upper that succeeds, but he that translates his knowledge and his gifting into a resourceful venture despites the challenges life gives to him or her. Nothing is new under the sun but we can as well translates those old things into new things that could be of help to us all. The school system wouldn’t teach you this. 
The present school system does not encourage talent development in her wards. There is no part of the curriculum that makes room for this both in our primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. We are being bounded by those old theories that was brought up by men of great will who once brainstorm bravely to conquer the world. Life is beyond these theories. The school limits the building of your abilities and Potentials, there are no such programs in our schools where special attention is given to these abilities you have within you, you have to fight it yourself and gain it yourself when you discovered the man in you.
Many of us has ended up cursing everything that the school system represents when our desire of good grades could not give us those dream jobs that our teachers lied to us that we’ll get when we come out with good grades. Many years of hunting for the unseen jobs has made us all to question the need for this called education if after all the pains and sacrifices we end up parading the whole streets of Nigeria scouting for jobs which never existed. you believe me that sometimes you die of regret by believing those things that your lecturers in school promised you. It is not their fault, the reality of life is far beyond those lies they told in our schools. 
We should be able to define the reason we go to school so that the essence of going to school won’t be determined by good grades, getting a mouth watery jobs, fulfilling those dreams our parents could not achieve, getting those certificates that our friends or family acquired. We should try to know and understand the reason why we should go to school and what we are going there to do. The world has changed drastically. Things are no longer the way they used to be but the school system has not change in our country, they still imbibled in those misleading lies of yesterday. The present school system has failed to recognize the uniqueness of each individual abilities, gift, talent, passion, movation, inspiration, potentials, and capabilities and how these qualities could shape the choice each individual make to determine his or her future.
Ignorance of the true meaning of education has caused more problem than it solves. Watch what you tell the youngsters that look up to you for advice. Let them know that the reality of Life is beyond the four walls of the school system.
