Mushroom private schools responsible for downward trend in education – Educationist

-

- Advertisment -

An Educationist, Franca Nkwoji, has said the increasing rate of private schools springing up from every corner of the streets by incompetent proprietors/proprietresses has contributed to the downward trend in the educational system.

Nkwoji, Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Frandach Consulting, said in an interview in Lagos that poor funding of the educational sector by the government was also a major problem that needed to be addressed and also the lack of proper educational regulatory body to checkmate proliferation of private schools by unqualified owners in the sector.

According to her, the government should put a law in place to guide issuance of licenses to private individuals that want to start schools ,saying all the requirements should be met before the licenses are given out.

Nkwoji said the government should give priority to the educational sector by putting vibrant and qualified people that had actively contributed to the development of the sector to use.

On how to address the problem of the girl-child education in Nigeria, the educationist said the popular saying that if you educate a woman then the entire nation is educated, was apt as the role of women in a child’s upbringing was important for the entire growth of the child.
