Lagos working with Federal Govt on schools reopening

THE Lagos State government  is working out modalities for the resumption of schools after the ongoing lockdown of some sectors in the state occasioned by the COVID-19(Coronavirus) pandemic.

It explained that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu “cannot not unilaterally” announce schools’ reopening  since the contagion did not affect Lagos alone.

The government  disclosed that  it had already started meeting with officials of the Federal Ministry of Education to design guidelines that would  be adopted before students could return to their classrooms.

Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, made this known while explaining    government’s  plans for education  at  an online show, Covinspiration show. The Online show was moderated by a United Nations (UN) Youth Ambassador, Dayo Isreal, to keep the public abreast of the administration’s activities in the last one year.

Adefisayo  said the government ,which also plans to recruit additional 2,000 teachers,  was watching the behaviour of COVID-19 to  determine the next step to take.

She added that government had concluded plans to employ at least 2,000 teachers in another few months to boost the standard of public primary school education in the state.

This, according to her,  is in addition to the 1,000 teachers earlier recruited by the government.
