It will be well-equipped. I think this is one of the model school they want to replaced the dilapidated and old schools with everywhere.

Fanoro: Osun State: Re-inventing Education For Purposeful Development
SATURDAY, 25 AUGUST 2012 00:00 BY ABIODUN FANORO OPINION - COLUMNISTS



EDUCATION, many agree, is the best legacy any society can bequeath to its youths, as it is the driving force behind the development of such a society. It is also a fact that any society that denies its younger generation quality education closes the door on its advancement culturally, traditionally and technologically.

This was obvious during the reign of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo as premier of the defunct Western Region, when he proclaimed free education for all its citizenry from elementary to tertiary level. Today, Nigeria still benefits from what Awolowo gave the younger generation of his time, in all facets of life.

Following the nation’s departure from regional government however, the nation’s education sector began to decline in the area of infrastructure, such as classrooms, writing materials, laboratories, teaching materials, teacher training and so on. Unfortunately, it does seem successive governments both at the state and federal levels have not shown adequate concern over the decline in the sector for decades.

Today, the quality of graduates produced in Nigerian universities is the evidence of the quality of education across the country. From primary schools to tertiary institutions, the education standard has fallen to an extent that it no longer seems to be contributing to either individual or national development.

During this period, the state of Osun was not an exception; the quality of infrastructure in public schools nosedived, including the state-owned tertiary institution. Most of the schools were turned into kangaroo certificate- awarding centres. Osun, which used to be a pride among its peers in education, became one of the least performing states, as only 3 percent of its candidates in the 2010 West African Examination Council (WAEC) secondary school certificate exams had five credits, including English Language and Mathematics.

However, immediately the government of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was inaugurated in November 2010, his first assignment was to convey an education summit, the first ever in the state, to look into ways of revolutionising the sector. It was chaired by the renowned Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka with other stakeholders in the sector, with a view to making education a major contributor to the development of individuals and the society as a whole.

Determined to implement the recommendation of the summit, the governor is committing N30 billion to building 170 new model schools across the state to replace the dilapidated buildings with modern facilities.

20 of these schools are for the Senior High students termed high school, that is, SSS 1 to SSS 3. When completed, it will conveniently accommodate 3,000 students on the basis of 40 students per class. Each of these structures would cost the state government a whopping N700 million. The school would also have an examination hall that can comfortably seat 1,500 students and two e-libraries; one for sciences and the other for arts and social sciences.

The junior schools, that is, Pry 4 to JSS 3, 50 in number, with its model in Osogbo, after completion, would accommodate 1,250 students. The elementary schools, that is, Pry 1 to 3, which would be 100 in number across the state, would conveniently accommodate 900 pupils.

To further stimulate the interest of students in learning, government is reducing the burden of going to school with bags packed with books, by replacing books with computer tablets invented by the state government. The tablet, designed in form of an iPod, called Opon Imo, will contain the senior school syllabus, including Yoruba traditions. Past questions of WAEC, NECO and JAMB would also be included in the software designed for the system. All these, are geared towards making learning pleasurable in schools and at home.

Students of the senior classes in public schools targeted for the pilot scheme would be given the computer tablet at no cost, though government is investing close to N2 billion on the project.

In a bid to encourage enrolment of children in public schools, government rejuvenated the school feeding programme and tagged it O’MEAL. The content of food served pupils was made more nutritious. This singular act has increased enrolment in public primary schools by 25 percent in the last session and government is anticipating increasing the figure in the coming session. Determined to ensure the sustainability of the programme, government is committing N2 billion annually to its implementation.

Realising the need for total reformation of the school system, the grading system is also to offer changes in line with the new schools; elementary schools would be graded along Junior secondary classes, hence, the new system would be grades 1 to 9, while those that excel from these grades move to the high school that would replace senior school classes, today known as SSS 1-3 and tagged grades 10-12. In addition, the school uniforms would also be changed to reflect reformation and uniformity in the schools. That is elementary, junior and high schools and would be distributed to them free.

Concerned with the plight of students in state-owned tertiary institutions due to suffocating fees charged by the previous administration, Aregbesola intervened. He reduced the fees payable at the Polytechnic and College of Technology from N42, 000 to N25, 000, while those of the state university was slashed from N205, 000 for Law and Medical students to N100, 000. Sciences was reduced from N155, 000 to N75, 000 while Social Sciences and Art now pay N75, 000 instead of N130, 000.

Yet, the reduction in internally generated revenue of the schools due to the tuition slash by government is returned to the schools authority as subvention as follows: Osun state Polytechnic, Iree gets N80, 600, 000 annually; College of Technology, Esa-Oke gets N47, 889, 000 while the two Colleges of Education at Ila-Orangun and Ilesa get N49, 454, 000 and N31, 336, 000 yearly respectively.

Knowing that investing in infrastructure alone without boosting the morale of the teachers cannot help the reformation agenda, government embarked on training of teachers to meet the challenges of modern teaching techniques, while the salary of those in tertiary education, whose salaries were monthly augmented by their various institutions to the tune of 20 per cent from their IGR before the advent of the administration was stopped and their full salary package was borne by the government, thereby removing the burden from the school authorities and enabling them the N108million saved by each of them annually to be committed to developing the schools.

This investment is aimed at achieving one of the governor’s six-point integral action plan - to promote functional education, an educational system that would not only drive the development of the state, but also the bedrock of national development.

To put things in perspective as well, it is important for folks to know that the School featured by the OP replaces the sort seen below because Aregbesola insists that children must learn in an adequately modern environment that will stimulate learning. Meanwhile Oyinlola , for almost 8 years, thought it okay to let children in the SW gain education in glorified Chicken coops while him and his gang embezzled every kobo.
