Delta to close Illegal private schools
Matthew Ochei, AsabaThe Delta State Government has planned to close all illegal private schools across the state.Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Mr Patrick Ukah, stated this on Thursday when members of Private Schools Owners of Nigeria (APSON) paid him a courtesy visit in Asaba.
He said, “The Inspectorate Department of the ministry will soon embark on the closure of private schools for those that have not completed their registration processes.“All the private schools that have provincial approvals to operate and are still in default of the registration requirements two years after getting the provisional approvals will be shut down.”
Ukah, however, frowned on the revelation that private schools promote all their students to the next class at the end of every academic session, cautioning that such action was not in the best interest of the children who failed their promotion examination.
The State Chairman of APSON, Comrade Keno Emiaso, noted that the association had maintained a cordial relationship with the ministry since its inception and stated their resolve to further strengthen the harmonious relationship with the ministry in improving the educational standard in the state.
