The Lagos state government has reacted to plans by some private schools in the state to resume on Monday, April 27, for the third term academic session by online teaching.
Lagos state is currently on lockdown and in a bid to keep the academic calender running without any disruption, some private schools have opted for online teaching.
Interested schools have sent letters to parents informing them of plans to resume on Monday and asking them to pay the school fees of their wards which is either the normal rate or at a subsidized rate.
Reacting to this development, the state Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo in a statement released, stressed that schools have not resumed for third term in the state.
She, however, acknowledged efforts by some schools to engage their students but appealed to such schools to consult extensively with parents and find a win-win solution that will be acceptable to all stakeholders.
