“We need more public schools to be built, Private schools cannot cater for larger percentage’ – Educationist

“We need more public schools to be built, Private schools cannot cater for larger percentage’ – Educationist

“We have far less equipped schools…. Private schools cannot cater for the larger percentage due to affordability. So there is need for more public schools to be built by the government.”

These are the words from an educationist, Mr. Michael Omisore, in an interview.

Omisore talks about the education sector and the way out of the numerous challenges bedeviling the sector, especially in the primary and secondary tiers.

Read the interview in parts,

Can we say Nigeria has enough schools at the moment?

We have far less equipped schools. The initiative by private individuals to run schools has helped the number a bit, but the amount is still quite short. Private schools cannot cater for the larger percentage due to affordability. So there is need for more public schools to be built by the government.

What can be done to bring out-of-school children back to school?

The answer is mass mobilisation; the third area mentioned above that government should look into. By mass mobilisation, I mean such publicity campaign on education that will make so much noise that it has to be heard and so much music that majority will yield to its intents and essence.

What danger does this current trend portend if not urgently addressed?

Education today will have a direct impact on the development of the society tomorrow. If this current trend is not curtailed, there are great chances professionalism in the country will further be watered down. The real few professionals will have to deal with mediocrity all around and the society will deal with more vices because of unemployment and poverty.
