Agagu stated this while addressing guests and participants at a capacity building programme organized for private school owners in the state.

The training programme, tagged; “Quality Assurance in Private Schools: School Development Plan (SDP) Framework,” was organised by the Inspectorate and Quality Assurance Department of the ministry to reintroduce private school owners to the best Quality Assurance Practices in the 21st century.

The Commissioner noted that the State has been in the forefront among its peers in the area of human capital development, and this has culminated in the brilliant performances of its students both at National and International competitions.

He said government has been working round the clock to improve the quality of education being provided for students in all institutions in the state, adding that the ministry was leveraging on the training to present to private school owners the principles and ideals that underpin Quality Assurance framework.

Agagu maintained that the training was to encourage Private Schools Owners to key into the global best practices of the 21st century and also seek to address identified areas for improvement and uphold areas of strength in the system.

The Commissioner assured private school owners that the ministry  would always come to their aid in ensuring that Quality Assurance strategies were effectively domesticated in all private schools across the state.

The Permanent Secretary, Mrs Lola Amuda  while nothing that the standard and prospect of any nation were measured by the overall effectiveness of both public and private educational institutions, urged private school owners in the state to strictly comply with government guidelines and education policies.

She said government was determined to ensure that required commitment and attention were given to excellent academic standard and expressed optimism that participants would develop new ideas and improve on their strategies  for the optimal performance of their respective schools.
