COVID-19: Osun to implement reviewed education policy

Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo

Osun State Government has mapped out plans to implement the reviewed reclassification policy of government-owned schools after coronavirus pandemic.
This was disclosed in a press statement signed by the Chairman, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board, Israel Famurewa.
It would be recalled that Osun state had approved the reversal of the single school uniform, ‘reclassification’ of the public school system, and the restoration of conventional single-sex schools introduced by the Rauf Aregbesola’s led administration.
The approval was given, following the recommendations made by a panel led by Prof. Olu Aina, which was set up to review the education policies of the past administration.
In view of this, Famurewa said efforts are ongoing to ensure that the new policy is implemented when schools resume after COVID-19 break.
According to him, “There is a need to fast track the process of implementing the review on the education policy so as to put necessary logistics in place before the schools resume.
“The review is targeted towards restoring 6-3-3-4 classification system through which each level of education will return to its earlier class structure.
“Thus, this necessitated this tour across the nine federal constituencies of the state as it’s hoped to bring the desired result in no distant time for the benefit of our children and their teachers.”
He said that the implementation of the recommendations of the review panel necessitated the data gathering and physical assessment of school for takeoff.
Also, the Director of School in the State Universal Basic Education Board, Alhaji Yaya Bakare said that the tour is for data gathering and physical assessment of schools across the nine federal constituencies of the state as it preludes the implementation before the schools’ resumption.
