A report on the status and policy compliance of all private schools in the state was given to Dr. Muhammad Sani Idriss, the Commissioner of Basic and Secondary Education in Yobe State, on Thursday by an ad hoc committee.
The commissioner emphasized that private schools should adhere to the culture, customs, and values of the state while taking in the report of the committee, which was given to him by Dr. Abba Idriss Adam, the chairman of the committee.
He went on to say that the state’s private schools have a primary duty to provide intellectually sound instruction, not to put financial gain ahead of this.
According to him, “all private schools in the state must also abide by the policies and programs of Gov. Mai Mala Buni’s administration in order to promote the state’s education sector.”
The ministry’s stance—that any private school that disregards these requirements faces the possibility of closure by the state—was restated by the commissioner.
He also urged owners of private schools who are not yet registered with the ministry to register and urged those who are to submit an application for a license renewal by December 2023.
The state government, Dr. Idriss cautioned, will not allow unwanted books to infiltrate.
Yobe Statens place a great importance on morality and decency in addition to their beliefs and culture. So we’ll protect them fiercely and make sure that bad culture doesn’t contaminate them,” he declared.
