It revealed that no free education and degree of corruption under the state government, Local Government Education Authority and the school management of Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1, in Sapele Local Government Area
If the state government failed to provide Free secondary and tertiary educations , they shouldn’t take their bad governance to the gates of our primary schools. There must be total free basic education for the pupils with sumptuous meal not concoction food.
The headmistress of Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1, Mrs Vero Igbigwe, scam might have been bursted by subjecting the little girl to corporal punishment” Flogging” but is the LGEA responsible and responsive In providing sound and quality education for the pupils?
Success has exposed many rots in our primary education sector despite the 13% derivation to Delta state but the poor condition of the affected school is not anything to write home about and does not justify the additional Federal Allocation.
Its Sapele Local Government today but the forms of exploitation from the parents of primary school’s pupils in some of the 774 Iocal councils in Nigeria are legendary.
There are some schools once the pupils parents are asked to come for an open day or other day , its a day of forcefully obtaining from the parents under false pretense.
Though in Kosofe Local government ( Agboyi ketu lcda and agboyi lcda) the various Local councils has constructed new block of classroom’s, provided chairs and benches, learning materials geared towards providing conducive learning environments.
While private individuals and organization has also contributed immensely to the standard of education in Kosofe. However, alot still need to be done so as to erased the public misconception and misperception that our public primary schools are meant for gateman , Gardner, Cook, chef and bricklayer children’s alone.
The state universal Basic education board (SUBEB) located in Kosofe should do more by getting the best hands for the pupils and retraining the existing teachers, education inspector should be alive to their duties, improve renumeration and time allowance coupled with effective KPI’s that will evaluate the teachers.
Also, more conducive learning environment , candies and sumptuous meal should be provided and irrelevant subject should be expunge from their curriculum.
