The Danger in Reopening Schools Now
We stand solidly in the same spot with the Government that schools ought not be reopened for the now. Reviving schools at this point of the coronavirus pandemic is a sentiment with disaster. After a meeting of the Federal Executive Council, the Minister of education, Mallam Adamu, declared that it was suspending plans to revive schools under its sacred locale. The Federal Government likewise requested that states participate in the exertion. The 19 Northern states have since joined to it. Be that as it may, a few states, remarkably Cross River, Ebonyi and states in the South West are squeezing ahead with plans to reopen. Truth be told, the South West, cooperating under the Advancement Plan for Western Nigerian, DAWN, has scheduled August 3, 2020 for reviving to empower transitional students to sit for their West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE. Education is on the Simultaneous List in our Constitution, which is the reason states and international zonal group of states are at freedom to choose for themselves. In this preferred position, we seeoutlines of a disaster. In the event that the nation had been rebuilt as we have reliably upheld, it would be alright for the different states or regional groups to act as per their different educational ideal models and dreams. However the system we operate is a uniform one, inside Nigeria, yet additionally at the West African regional level. It would have helped if a choice on resumption and direct of transitional exams had been concurred at that level. The Nigerian calender schedule will be jostled if the WASSCE exams hold in certain places of the nation and not in others. A system that pushes all classes ahead consistently will become disconnected when transitional students graduate to meet those deteriorated in freshman University levels. It will likewise build up a gap in the final year levels next session. Unless a decision is taken to allow mass promotion.
