Mrs. Mopelola Oluwole, Proprietress of Blessed Assurance Schools, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to save the Nigeria’s educational system by monitoring activities of the private schools, particularly in the aspect of staff recruitment.
She made the call at the 26th anniversary celebration of the school where she complained about the quality of teachers in most of the country’s private schools.
“It is unfortunate that in most of the nation’s private schools, professional teachers are not employed by school owners, resulting in half-baked undergraduates.
“Government should ensure that school owners have qualitative education to protect the sector from quacks and secure the future of our children,” she stated.
Mrs. Oluwole described the poor educational background of some school owners as one of the problems responsible for the influx of unqualified teachers in the system.
The Co-founder of Blessed Assurance Schools, Clement Oluwole, commended the Lagos State Government for its efforts towards improving education service delivery in private schools.
He urged school owners to devote more time towards grooming students to become future leaders.
