The Lagos State Government has sealed 10 private schools that flouted the closure directives of the federal and state governments as a result of Covid-19 pandemic to ensure the safety of students.
The Director-General, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Lagos State, Mrs Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, who led the Monitoring and Investigation team of the office, disclosed this during the second and third phase of the massive monitoring of private schools compliance to the directive to curb the spread of the scourge still ravaging the country and the world at large.
According to Mrs Seriki-Ayeni, a large number of private schools visited across the state were found to have complied while the non-compliant schools have been sealed.
The exercise, she further stated, would be continuous and encompassing, cutting across all the education districts in the state to discourage the nonchalant attitude of some schools to this directive. Central to the monitoring exercise is the safety of all learners due to their vulnerability. (Nation)
