Ironically, moral decadence has become the order of the day in higher institutions in Nigeria. Among this decadence is ‘sorting’ whose mother is corruption. It has become a worrisome concept in the Nigeria educational system. Sorting is one of the corrupt practices that seem to be threatening the standard of education in Nigerian higher education.. Aside sorting, corrupt practices and some immoral acts in the Nigerian higher educational system include: admission racketeering, examination misconduct, falsification of academic records such as transcripts, sexual harassment and victimization of applicants, victimization of students by officials etc. The standard of education in Nigeria has fallen in recent years is a conventional claim that cannot be disputed. This research work explained the concept and problems of sorting; causes and effects and also alarmed that if educational managers did not act fast to correct the menace, the standards of Nigerian higher education will continue to degenerate. The hermeneutic approach is used in this research work. This paper recommends that if effective quality of education is to be achieved in Nigeria, there is need for holistic reorientation, re-engineering and rebranding of education in Nigeria, especially in higher institutions.
