Proprietor urges government to monitor private schools for improved performance
The founder of Blessed Assurance Schools, Mrs. Mopelola Oluwole, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to save the nation’s educational system by monitoring activities of the private schools, particularly their mode of staff recruitment.
Oluwole who made the plea at the 26th-anniversary celebration of the school lamented the quality of teachers in most of the nation’s private schools.
“It is unfortunate that in most of the private schools in Nigeria, professional teachers are not employed by some school owners, resulting in half-baked undergraduates.
Oluwole identified the poor educational background of some school owners as one of the problems responsible for the influx of unqualified teachers in the system.
“Government should ensure that school owners have qualitative education to protect the sector from quacks and secure the future of our children,” Oluwole stated.
Zonal superintendent, Foursquare Gospel church, Ejigbo, and co-founder of the school, Clement Oluwole, commended the Lagos State government for its conscious effort towards improving education service delivery in private schools while urging school owners to devote more time towards grooming students to become future leaders.
