Oyo Govt. to Begin Academic Rating of Private Schools
Oyo State government has charged private school proprietors to sustain the already established education standard in the State as open standard rating of each school will soon be done.
The State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye gave the charge over the weekend, while playing host to the State’s chapter of Association of Private School Owners of Nigeria, APSON, during a courtesy visit to the Ministry.
Olaleye noted that schools in the State must endeavor to partner with the government in its commitment to qualitative education, asking them to achieve the 5 point standard rate with structural, academic and welfare of students and staffers in their schools.
“You have to struggle to be the standard we want you to be because there will be criteria for you to attain a particular standard, I am sure all of you aspire to get to the 5 points.
“This one will come very soon and not only that we will just do it, it will be there on our website and it will be there in front of your school, we will put it there that this school is rated 3, this school is rated 2, this school is rated 5.
“And the rating can come down as well, the fact that you are 5 today does not mean next year if you fall in standard and you fall in quality and other criteria you won’t come down so, this one is coming very soon.
“I want to appeal to you to join us raise the standard of education in Oyo state and to ensure that our ranking of achievement and external examinations performance becomes the best,” Olaleye added.
