The Proprietor and Director of Studies, 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, the menace is killing the education system in Nigeria and if care is not taken, the country will continue to breed a crop of graduates that can not defend their certificates.
He made the call during the event organized to celebrate the school’s 30th anniversary.
Besides, 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 crunch 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.
