      Anti — corruption education is important in schools because it will create awareness to the younger generation. We see that corruption has eaten deep into the various strata of the society, there is therefore the need to promote good culture as they are still in the level of character development. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he grows up, he will not depart from it is a maxim we should not forget. One good way to prevent corruption is to create that anti corruption consciousness in the lives of children.. Every adult knows that corruption is a canker worm but, how to eradicate it has become an illusion so, it is important to teach it from early age.

      There is a saying that says ‘Train up a child when he/her is young, so when they grow old they will not depart from it.’
      This is a practical example that have been observed and tested to be very correct.
      ° The young mind is very susceptible to repeated training.
      ° The young learn faster by visual examples and training.
      ° Old habit never die easily. Behaviours (morals amd values) built over years last ones life time.

      Anti- corruption education in schools is very important because it enables the young ones to know the meaning of corruption,forms of corruption and consequence of corrupt practices.

      Secondly, it will give the young ones clear picture of integrity and run after it (integrity).

      Thirdly, teaching anti corruption education in schools will help not to repeat the same kind of system of government we have now,particularly in Nigeria because these young ones are the leaders of tomorrow. Once we catch them at this level,they will actually do the right thing when they get to that post because they have understood what integrity is and the benefits of integrity,how to navigate from corrupt practices. Also corruption and its consequence,these will help them a lot in making decision in future.

      It is important to teach Anti- Corruption in school starting at the Early Years. When children learn it at a tender age it becomes their habit or second nature. “Habits die hard” they say. Once it is their habit they are not likely to behave differently since it is ingrained in them and they know no other way of living. “Catch them young ” is another quote that supports teaching Anti- corruption to children at an early age. A child who has grown up for an example, telling the truth irrespective of whether he is on the wrong and may be beaten will do the same thing when in office.

      I think anti-corruption education is important and should be taught in school because children are teachable and learn fast, when you impact the right virtue it stick for a very long time
      Also, we should build in them excellent character of integrity even as they Excel in their studies.
      Again, they need to know the implications of living a corrupt life and that of integrity, then they will be able to choose and live right as they grow to up to occupy various positions in life unlike the older ones now that has become dry fish that is not easy to bend again. We need to train these young ones in the way to go so that when they grow they will not depart from it.

      Anti-corruption education is important to be taught in our school in the sense that it helps to catch them young because the country of today where so many wrongs doing have been perceived as the right things. This ideology of seeing wrong as right can be changed at this youthful age.

      Secondly it helps to bring about good governance, good leadership, a leader with integrity and a leader with a difference in the later future.

      Thirdly it helps to make the world a better place since the generation have been groomed in the right direction early in life.

      Anti-corruption education is important in our schools to be taught for the following reasons.
      1. Ground for Great Mind: the school is the home where great minds are born and as well groomed, it would be the right place to start the teaching of anti-corruption education.
      2. The mind of learner’s bend easily to their tutor: it’s far easier for the learner’s to easily adopt and pick up the teaching and even doctrines of their tutor and at an earlier age it would be had let such learning go.
      3. Value added service: when anti-corruption education is taught in our schools it’s a value added service in the sense that it makes one a better material to the society at large

      Anti-Corruption is very important in Schools because children tend to believe the information garnered and taught to them by their teachers. These teachers are employed professionals who are expected to deliver verified information and use different method of teaching to enable wards learn easily.
      The school is the second environment where learners spend most of their time and a strategic place to deliver a structured and interesting Anti-corruption lesson plan.
      Students uphold the qualification requirement needed to move to the next class therefore it is paramount that they are successful in all subjects.
      We can minimally eradicate corruption if not completely by using the school which is an institution of many verified information. These information are instilled in the lives of learners and are properly planned in their curriculum for better understanding
