Blame FG for poor standard of education - PTA boss

The Chairman of the Par­ents Teachers Association (PTA), Innovative Heritage Academy, Kabayi in Karu Local Government of Nasarawa State, Mr Christopher Akagbosu, has said that the Federal Government should be held responsible for the poor standard of the nation’s edu­cation system.
Akagbosu, who stated this dur­ing the maiden inter-house sports competition organised by the school, stressed that government has automatically turned deaf ears to the challenges facing public schools in the country.
The PTA chairman said there is need for all levels of governments to live up to their responsibilities by providing the required facili­ties in public schools, adding that “if you go to government schools today no classroom but money is allocated to manage the schools.”
On his part, the Director of the Academy, Mr. Godwin Oladejobi, maintained that poor standard in education is as a result of several factors which include inconsis­tent government policies at all levels.
He also blamed parents refusal or inability to pay the school fees of their children as at when due as well as the easy entrance and easy exist syndrome of teachers as problems affecting the nation’s education sector.
The former bank director ap­pealed to government at all levels to always get input from the Na­tional Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) in en­acting policies that have to do with education.
In his welcome address, the Principal of the school, Mr. Agbe­nin Joseph, expressed gratitude to God for the successful event, just as he stressed the importance of sport in youth development, es­pecially in the areas of alertness of the body and attentiveness to studies.
