Stakeholders in the education sector have been advised to put the necessary measures in place in checking the spread of covid 19, as exit classes resume nation wide
One of the guest, a former Director FCTA Secretariat Department of Quality Assurance, Mallam Salihu Yahaya gave the advice while featuring on “PERSPECTIVES” a Kapital FM Current Affairs Programme.
Mallam Yahaya stressed the need for schools to create a conducive learning environment for students amidst the covid- 19 Pandemic.
“The medical system has to be ready because they have been treating patients, the students situation is different entirely, once the students are not managed properly there would be a problem”
Mr Yahaya therefore urged parents to monitor the activities of schools in adhering to the prevention protocols by the National Centre for Disease Control.
“Parents should abide by the rules, we are under authority, when you are sending your child to school make sure the protocols are followed and schools not doing the right thing should be reported to the appropriate authorities”
The former Director, FCTA Department of Quality Assurance commended the federal Government for its efforts in combating the spread of the virus.
Another guest on the Programme, an Educationist, Mr Joshua Abah called on stakeholders in the sector to adjust the school curriculum towards achieving the required development in the school system.
“The calendar has to be adjusted and structures have to be put in place we have to resume now for the exit classes to write exams and leave, if not they would be missing a whole year and a new session is about to start we cannot start a new session , when we have not completed the previous session” Abah stressed.
” Adjust to the new normal that we find ourselves, we must come together to fight this. Providing a good learning environment is good for their cognitive experience”
The educationist therefore emphasized that all hands must be on deck in containing the disease as schools resume.
