Osun education ministry shuts 23 schools for operating below standard
The Ministry of Education in Osun State has shut down about 23 private schools for operating without required standards.
Some of the offences that necessitated the closure of the schools included dirty teaching environment, unqualified teachers, non-renewal of licenses and operating without licence.
The State Commissioner for Education, Hon. Folorunso Oladoyin while supervising the closure of the schools on Tuesday, said the sealing off of the affected schools was part of government’s efforts to sanitise the education sector for better results.
After the seal-off excercise across the state, the government said it will not relent in its efforts at giving quality education to Osun students because they are the future of the state.
Oladoyin noted that Governor Gboyega Oyetola led administration would ensure that students in the state always get the best in terms of quality education.
He said agents of the state education ministry would continue to scout the state in order to fish out more mushroom and substandard private schools.
The Commissioner stressed that the state government is determined to producing graduates who are critical thinkers and globally competitive.
He therefore advised private schools who are not properly registered with the state’s Ministry of Education to do so as soon as possible because government will not condone any act that can sabotage its resolve to give Osun students the best.
The Sealed schools included Hephzibah Kiddies, Ejigbo, Najeemdeen Model Schools, Ejigbo, Favour of God secondary school, Okinni, Omolara Nursery And Primary School,Iwo among others.
