          Exploitation of students by teachers in not a new phenomenon in our society in the past some students have been physically and emotionally exploited. Student is indeed or made to work in their teacher’s house, teacher’s farm, carry firewood and fetching water for their teacher’s e.t.c.

Nowadays, it is a different thing all together, the act of selling monographs and text books has give some bad impression on the lecturers who use one way or the other to manipulate exploit the student to make own money without considering prevailing in Nigeria now.

Again students are been exploited by paying one levy or the other like departmental levy, test levy e.t.c.

In the years past, when education was what it supposes to be students were not being taxed for anything.

Textbooks and handouts were given free of charge but now the reverse has been the case, teachers have turned our school to become bookshops where buying and selling of books are made available and compulsory in the name of money in primary and secondary level.

The indigent students that have no money to buy these books are being made to fail the course because of the fact that they could not purchase those books.

Teachers also exploit the students through sexual harassment and sorting of result where the teachers are made to pay either in cash or kind.

Students are made or are no longer serious with their studies since they feel that if they are able to meet up with the demands of their teachers they will pass.

For the fact that this situation of the exploitation has been a burden to students in secondary schools and tertiary institutions parents and guardians who see to the education of their children and relations have little or no left over money with them due to the fact that the money were been taken away by the teachers in one way or the other.

Because of this immoral attitude by the teachers, a good number of students have fallen victim of contact sexual transmitted disease as well as victims of unwanted pregnancies in our society.
