…As School Celebrates 30-year Anniversary
The Proprietor and Director of Studies, at Ferscoat International School, Lagos, Pastor Felix Opata has called on the government to help in the fight against examination malpractice in the country.
According to him, this is killing the education system in Nigeria and if care is not taken, the country will soon have a crop of graduates that cannot defend their certificates.
He made the call during the event organized to celebrate the school’s 30 years anniversary held in Lagos.
Pastor Opata also appealed to the government through the ministry of education to come to the aid of private schools financially.
He said this became necessary because of the current economic terrain which has made it difficult for private individuals to run very effectively even though parents pay fees.
“The amount of money needed by schools has never been enough.
“If private schools must deliver on their promise of quality academic standards then the government should come to our aid through reduced taxes, reduced interest rates from borrowing for projects, and intervention funds for the development of schools,” he added.
