Description The relevance of the environment in value creation and appropriate education (AE) is yet to gain the recognition it deserves even in Nigeria’s education industry. The study examines the role of environmental constraints in limiting value creation in higher education in Nigeria. Guided by extant literature and critical analysis of the educational environment in Nigeria, the study observes that higher propensity of parents’ involvement in examination manipulation and malpractice and course selection for their children, grade sorting, poor infrastructure, etc. are all environmental factors hindering value creation in higher education in Nigeria. The implication is that human capital development in general and in specialized technological areas will continue to experience great difficulties. The paper argues for strategic planning by higher institutions of learning and attitudinal value reorientation by stakeholders as a panacea towards effective and efficient human capital development in Nigeria.
