In the state of Ondo, teachers who work in public schools are not allowed to enroll their kids or wards in private schools.
The State’s Chairman of the Universal Basic Education Board, Victor Olabimtan, asserted that the development was to blame for the decline in enrollment in public elementary schools.
In a statement released on Sunday, August 28, the head of SUBEB’s press and information services, Bisi Agboola, said that despite its investments in primary education across the State, the government is worried about the situation.
The statement read: “The government condemned in strong terms the attitude of some teachers taking their biological children to private schools and ruled that it has become an offence for any public school teachers to take their wards to private schools.
“Ondo State government will not relent in its efforts at upgrading school standard as well as its personnel.
“It called on the Education Secretary in the 18 local government areas in the state not to hesitate in reporting any teacher found wanting in their duty post for possible sanction.”
