As public schools in Lagos State resume for the 2015/16 second term academic session today, Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has commended principals, teachers and schools administrators for helping the government to implement policy-yielding changes in public schools across the state.
According to a statement from her office on Sunday, Dr Adebule called for double efforts in the New Year for improvements in students’ performances in all examinations. This, she said, is to justify government’s huge investment in the sector.
She said this objective is achievable when teachers and school administrators re-dedicate themselves to the ethics of the teaching profession, make education interesting and inspiring to their students.
“We have the unique responsibility to be the prime change agents our dear state needs in order to become a better place to live and work. All we need is to re-dedicate ourselves to the ethics of the profession and make education interesting and inspiring again”, she said.
“As I welcome you back to school, we need to walk together to our destination which is to be an excellent model for education in Nigeria and the whole of Africa”, she said, adding that this can only be achieved when all stakeholders re-dedicate themselves and take ownership of government vision in the overall interest of the students.
