Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Idiat Adebule, on Tuesday directed owners of private schools in the state to register with the state’s Ministry of Education within two weeks or face sanction. Adebule, who gave the two-week ultimatum while briefing newsmen in Lagos, said the registration was aimed at opening a data base for private schools in the state and to ensure adequate monitoring of their operations.
She said: “Improved education is one of the main focus of the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration and we cannot plan properly for private schools without data.
“We recognise the role of the private schools.
“They are partners of the government as they help provide access to education for our children in the state.
“But as a government, we need to know how many of these private schools are operating in the state and how many students are under their care so we can monitor their activities and plan properly for them.
“The Ministry of Education has been on this issue for a while and we are opening another window of opportunity.
“They have two weeks to register or face sanction.”

Are you a school administrator, leader or teacher? Do you want to deepen your skills in school management or integrate a range of skills into your curriculum?
The British Council is inviting applications from school leaders and teachers for the Core Skills training programme. The training packages give participants the tools and approaches they need to ensure effective core skills provision in their schools, including strategies for planning, monitoring and improving teaching and learning and for mapping core skills across the curriculum.
WHAT ARE CORE SKILLS?
Core skills are the essential skills that young people need to be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy. Sometimes referred to as deep learning skills, they introduce young people to new ways of working, new ways of thinking and new ways of living in a global world.
HOW CAN I TAKE PART?
Six core skills training packages will be available to teachers across Nigeria:
Teaching critical thinking and problem-solving
Teaching collaboration and communication
Teaching digital literacy
Teaching creativity and imagination
Teaching student leadership and personal development.
The programmes are suitable for any qualified teaching staff, from both public and private educational institutions.
HOW THESE PROGRAMMES RUN
Each programme will be taught over a 12-14-week period, with face-to-face sessions taking place at the beginning and end, as well as online support throughout. Courses commencing in November 2015 will be detailed here soon but you can register your interest now.
The Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Education is to begin unannounced visitations to private schools in the state to monitor their standards.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt that many of the private schools were not complying with standards and that they were always paying peanuts to teachers after collecting huge school fees from parents.
The Chairman of the committee, Lanre Ogunyemi, (APC-Ojo II), told NAN in an interview in Lagos on Sunday that the visitation was to compel the private school operators to comply with standards.
“Part of our oversight functions is to ensure that the ministry of education is doing what it ought to do in monitoring and inspection of these private schools.
“The ministry ought to work to the extent that it can assure the public that the quality of education these private schools are delivering is good enough.
“The private schools will soon be feeling the presence of the house committee on education.
“The committee is planning to ensure that private schools maintained high standards and qualitative staffing for the parents and children who patronised them.
“A situation where private schools engage school certificate holders to be teachers, paying paltry sum of maybe 8,000 or 20,000 will no longer be tolerated.
“The private schools too will also be feeling our presence in their domain any time from now,” he said.
The lawmaker said the committee had gone round the model colleges and public schools unannounced to ascertain the true situation of things.
Ogunyemi said the State Government was fixing its own schools to have courage to look into what obtained in private schools.
He said, however, that private schools were partners in progress with the State Government in the delivery of the quality education the state was aspiring to have.
On the qualification of teacher, the lawmaker said that the minimum teaching certificate in public and private schools in Lagos State should be the Nigerian Certificate in Education.
“School certificate for God’s sake is not a teaching qualification, at best they can be clerks, helping staff in those private schools.”

The Nature of ownership of Private schools and the purpose for which the owners have set them up present a herculean task in having Private schools lend themselves to inquiries and administrative cooperation from external bodies. For these reasons the major challenges in managing Private schools would border on the following:
(a) Quality assurance
The process of education is vital in achieving education goals. The question therefore will be, are private schools engaging in best practices in education that contribute to good performance. In other words are private schools lending themselves to the specified statewide standards as directed by the Ministry of Education? Beginning from establishment through operation to certification, private school ought to conform to education law of the state in order to contribute towards realizing the objectives of education in Lagos State.
(b) Facilities / equipment
In accomplishing teaching and learning, facilities/equipment are central to any learner centred education. Most Private schools especially Low Fee Payment (LFP) may not be able to afford facilities/equipment necessary for offering certain subjects in the curriculum especially in the sciences, technical and vocational areas. This also causes most of these schools to focus more on social sciences and art subjects to the detriment of a balanced curriculum as required by the educational system. The state education policy weighs in on sciences, technical and vocational education and has encouraged this over the years. Therefore Private schools needing to operate should have equipment and facilities likely to promote emphasis areas in Lagos State Education policy.
School environment is a critical factor in school operations and success. Over 70% of Private schools in Lagos State are sited in either private homes or make shift buildings and do not have capacity for further expansion in the nearest future. The provisions of sporting facilities, library, convenience, dispensary, etc. are functions of space.
Availability of funds to Private school owners is important. Most Private Schools are small in size, lacking teaching equipment and facilities and trapped in make shifts house or rented accommodation. Little Patronages, astronomical costs of accommodation retard their ability to acquire education specific environment, equipment, quality teachers, all necessary to meet set standards for the operation of schools in the state or even elsewhere. Banks hardly do business with small size schools compounding their problem in accessing loans facility (Odeleye, Oyelamin & Abike, 2012). Government of Lagos State would perhaps make possession of a given sum of funds and facility guarantee from a commercial bank, preconditions for licencing a school.
(e) Condition of service/motivation.
The Private School System should evolve a platform for harmonized conditions of service that mirrors what is obtainable in the Public Secondary School. This will enable teachers in Private Schools who see their job as adhoc arrangement settle down to develop careers in such school and contribute meaningfully well to education delivery. It should also be a precondition for licencing a school.
(f) Manpower development/capacity building programme
The teaching force of any school makes a statement about the quality of the school. Teachers who are technically equipped would work towards achieving set goals of education. It is imperative that deliberate effort be part of the Private Schools‘ Plans in ensuring quality teaching and learning.
(g) Creating board of governors
Private school owners should be compelled to create Board of Governors, when requesting for Licence to operate. The functions of the Board, number of meeting for a year and reporting process clearly identified and specified before Licencing is done.
(h) Merger plans
Private schools owners would need to look at the trend in the industrial Sector to see how most firms are surviving. A number of school owners can come together to discuss merging their schools in order to develop mega school, by bringing their resources together.
