Lagos State Ministry of Education is set to commence the implementation of the experimental fee regime as agreed during a meeting of officials of the Ministry of Education, parents and lawmakers recently.
In a recent statement, the State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, explained that the sum of
N35,000, as agreed by the stakeholders at the meeting, will be paid by all students of Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools for the next two terms.
She reiterated that no other fees will be charged nor will any intervention be imposed within the period to avoid overburdening parents and also determine the workability of the new boarding school fees.
Mrs. Adefisayo averred that the menu list of the students will also be reviewed and standardised in terms of essential nutrition, noting that the Schools are also expected to incorporate available local menu and seasonal foods.
She also declared that representatives of the parents’ body will be incorporated into the boarding house committee to ensure inclusive supervision, revealing that the resumption of students in Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools commenced on Sunday, 19th September with SS2 students, while new JS1 students and other returning students will follow on the 2nd and 9th of October respectively.
The Commissioner appreciated the parents for their understanding and assured all stakeholders of the continuous support of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration for quality education.
