Indigenes of Edo North Senatorial zone of Edo State have suggested that collaborative efforts be taken among governments, communities, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), corporate organisations operating in the region and well meaning individuals to address what many described as a major crisis for thousands of school children in the region.
Among solutions put forward to halt the dwindling state of education in the areas include ” the establishment of learning centers in communities and towns of the region, provision and upgrade of dilapidated school infrastructure, addressing poverty in rural communities and a reorientation of the value system in the country”.
They therefore called on governments to change attitude toward the development of education and tackle corruption in the sector and urged communities and well meaning indigenes to assist government by adopting a ” child and teachers policy for training in order improve the region human capital development”.
The indigenes also urged the state government to provide quality and retraining of teachers to equip them with the right skills and knowledge as well as making the teaching profession attractive with effective policies and remunerations.
