Katsina orders withdrawal of children from private schools

The Katsina State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), has directed primary school teachers and all head teachers in the state to withdraw their children from private schools and enrol them in public schools.


The SUBEB chairman, Lawal Buhari Daura gave the directive on Wednesday, during an inspection tour of Local Education Authority (LEA) in Kankia.


Daura said the directive was in line with an earlier order issue by the Governor, Aminu Bello Masari that public officers under his administration must patronise public schools as part of efforts to revive the education sector.


According to reports, most of the primary school teachers in public schools do not patronise public schools as they enrol their children and wards in private schools, an action which suggests that they have no confidence in the public schools.
