Insecurity: Low students, teachers attendance mars school resumption in Kaduna..
Only few students and teachers have resumed school in Kaduna State despite the government’s approval for schools to reopen from September 12, 2021.
Daily Post reports that as at the second day of resumption, the number was still very low across the 23 local governments of the state.
However, the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Shehu Makarfi, announced during a virtual workshop organised by the Education Writers’ Association of Nigeria that the resumption would be in phases.
“The first term will resume on September 12, 2021, and they will be in school until December 16, 2021. The SS1 and SS2 students from five local government areas, which are affected by the crisis, will be moved to some boarding schools,” he said.
But, parents of children in the state jettisoned the arrangements, describing it as “a decision hurriedly made without security arrangements.
