Following the rising wave of insecurity in schools, Human Development Initiative, HDI, with the support of MacArthur Foundation has called on the state government to beef up security in schools.
They made the call at a training session for SBMC members by Human Development Initiatives (HDI) on capacity building training for secondary school teachers, principals on the role of SBMC, around the issues that have to do with tracking and monitoring projects particularly on use and utilization of funds that have been signed to finance projects in their respective schools.
She said SBMC members need to rise up, strategise to ensure community schools’ needs are met.
Also, the programme officer of the organization, Johnson Ibidapo, in his words said: “The essence of this training is for capacity building for School-Based management committee members in secondary school in Lagos State. We want them to be well informed, well equipped, and confident enough to engage, such that education delivery in Lagos State will be better than what we currently have.
Speaking further, he said: “We want a situation where SBMC and school administrators would be able to work together to ensure there is quality delivery of education either basic education or secondary education.
