Description Education holds the key to productivity and sustainable development anywhere in the world. The study investigated the impact of educational policies on the achievement of sustainable development in Nigeria. Data for the study were obtained from ministries of education and other bodies responsible for making educational policies in Africa. Four research questions and two hypotheses were formulated. Regression slope was used to test the hypotheses. Based on the findings, education improves health, knowledge, skills, values and aids in building up the human capital of the nation. Consequently, it is recommended that ministry of education in Nigeria and in Africa as a whole should endeavour to address sustainable development as a core value through policies and practices at the three tiers of education, namely primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
