The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu while addressing the participants via Zoom during the Quality Assurance Evaluation Training, tagged; “Quality Assurance In Schools: The Roles Of School Heads”, organized by Zonal Education Office Yewa North, said that as parts of quality assurance efforts of the Ministry, schools, either public or private primary or secondary must adhere strictly to standards and policies of the government on education.
Prof. Arigbabu, in a statement signed by the Press Officer, MES&T, Mr. Ayoola Obadimu, implored the Zonal Education Office to work more on getting unapproved schools in the axis to get approval, warning that any school operating illegally would henceforth be made to face the full wrath of the law and be sealed off.

“I want to specially commend the Director of Quality Assurance and Teachers Development, Mr. Martins Akinsolu and the Zonal Education Officer, Miss. Mary Duze for this initiative that will boost the teaching and learning situations in schools and improve the quality of education at all levels, because, if you don’t train people, you cannot accuse them of not doing the needful”, he said

While doing the overview of the programme, the Director of Education, Quality Assurance and Teachers Development, Mr. Martins Akinsolu posited that the major concern of government for education sector is to improve on the quality of education being provided for the learners at all levels, thus the training for 132 Public Primary, 35 Public Secondary, 81 approved private primary and 27 approved private secondary school heads in the zone becomes pertinent.
