Anam­bra clamps down on spe­cial, mir­a­cle cen­tres

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Beatrice Onuchukwu Awka

Anam­bra State Com­mis­sioner for Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­fes­sor Kate Omenugha has warned pro­pri­etors of “spe­cial and mir­a­cle cen­tres” in the state to shut down or face the law.

She said her min­istry will not hes­i­tate to take ac­tion against own­ers of such schools, where stu­dents rush to sit for the West African Ex­am­i­na­tions.

Omenugha gave the warn­ing when the state branch of Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Pro­pri­etors of Pri­vate Schools (NAPPS) paid her a visit yes­ter­day.

“Spe­cial and mir­a­cle cen­tres would be erad­i­cated; that is one of the vi­sions of the present ad­min­is­tra­tion,’’ she said.

She said the state govern­ment is de­ter­mined to boost ed­u­ca­tion in the state and has pack­aged many in­no­va­tions to im­prove the sec­tor.

Ear­lier, Mr Sun­day Anaekwe, state pres­i­dent of the as­so­ci­a­tion, promised that they would co­op­er­ate with the govern­ment to en­sure func­tional and qual­i­ta­tive ed­u­ca­tion in the state.
