The Lagos State Government has commenced the implementation of a new educational policy initiative tagged 3600 Education Policy, which would promote the growth of functional and qualitative education across the state.

Deputy Governor of the State, Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule, disclosed this recently at a two-day retreat/meeting organised by the Department for International Development (DFID) and Education Sector Support Programme in Nigeria (ESSPIN) to review the State Educational Development Agenda and Opportunities held at Golden Tulip Hotel, Festac Town, Lagos.

Adebule stated that the new policy, when fully implemented, will make the teaching and learning environment more conducive for the total education of school children. She stressed that the new model would ensure that public schools are fully equipped with the state-of-the-art learning facilities.

The Deputy Governor, who is also in charge of the Education Ministry in the state, added that the newly approved school building under the new policy would provide spaces for visual and literary arts, sciences, visual and expressive school history, library and media centres, sports/play ground, ICT unit and other facilities necessary for quality teaching and  learning.

Adebule hinted that the State Executive Council has approved the new policy for implementation in the State, adding that government would ensure a significant improvement in teaching methods and staff quality including the introduction of technology based instructional tools to achieve enhanced performance in all public schools in the State.

While expressing confidence that the new 3600 Education Policy is an initiative that will raise the standard of education, Adebule assured that the present administration will partner notable quality education support organisations such as the Department for International Development (DFID), Education Sector Support Programme in Nigeria (ESSPIN) and Developing Effective Private Education in Nigeria (DEEPEN) among others in order to ensure success of its educational policies.

According to her, “The implementation of our 3600 education policy will not be complete without active partnership with support organisations such as DFID, ESSPIN, and DEEPEN whose partnership and collaborations has been of key importance to the attainment of modest educational performance outcomes in the state.”

She reaffirmed government commitment to the implementation of sustainable educational development policies in the state including adequate welfare for its teaching staff, noting that the very huge amount allocated to education in the 2016 budget was a demonstration of government desire for improvement and positive change in the education sector.

Dr. Adebule promised that the Ministry of Education, under her watch, will ensure successful implementation of laudable educational programmes that will re-position the status of education in the state.

While calling on all stakeholders in the education sector to double their efforts to achieve government desire for success in the sector, she urged members and leaders of various Community Development Associations (CDAs) to join hands and support government initiatives by ensuring adequate protection for schools infrastructure in their areas so that government huge investment in education will not be a waste.

Earlier in her opening remarks, DFID South/West Acting Regional Co coordinator, Mrs. Margaret Fagboyo, stated that the two-day retreat/meeting was organised as part of the measures to partner the state in achieving its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in education, which is crucial to the attainment of other developments.

She said her organisation will continue to support the State Government in the planning and implementation of its policies in education because of its important position as a role model State in the country.
