El-Rufai Orders Govt. Officials to Withdraw Children from Private Schools

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has stopped senior civil servants in the state from sending their children and wards to private schools.

The directive will be enforced from the next academic session.
Ahead of the time, the affected government functionaries have been directed to withdraw their children and wards from private schools and prepare them for admission into the public schools.

Kaduna State Commis­sioner for Education, Prof. Andrew Nock, said that plans have been concluded by the state government to restore public schools to their past glory.
On the failed attempts by successive administrations to implement similar policy, Nock said that “our government is not like the previous ones. What we will do is to monitor it to ensure that this order is carried to the latter.”

The commissioner said that as part of the efforts to revamp education in the state, 15 public secondary schools have been converted to boarding schools with effect from the next session.
