The 197 sub-standard private schools in Abia state, stands a chance to be reopened as the state government has laid out conditions for that.
Speaking to journalists on Monday, the state Commissioner for Information and Culture, Prince Okey Kanu said that a standard has been set for private schools and those who are able to meet up, stands a chance to be reopened.
Kanu recalled that the schools were shutdown because of quality of teachers, poor learning environment and sub-standard curriculum.
In his words;
“Government is carrying out reforms; government set a certain standard; government has a target base to ensure that all the schools in the State are complying but those in the private sector have not committed themselves in such a manner.
“The major reason the government decided to shut down those schools is principally because of substandard in their curriculum and quality of teachers and some of them because of environment. So that’s the reason we said those who are committed to changing the way they operate and can meet the standards that Government has set up, Government will allow them to get back to work.”
