FG, States to create E-learning centres for out-of-school children

The Federal and state governments have resolved to set up e-learning centres for out-of-school children in the country.

Both levels of government also agreed to ensure the use of Accelerated Basic Education Curriculum (ABEC) at the centres.

This decision was taken at the just concluded 65th National Council on Education meeting in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital.

The council also agreed that states and the FCT should set up a task force to enforce sanctions on parents/guardians whose children/wards are on the streets during school hours.

In a communique at the end of the meeting, the council agreed that the Federal Ministry of Education, states and the FCT should evolve and implement coordinated and sustainable strategic enrolment drive campaign to bring out-of-school children into the school net as well as ensure retention and completion of basic education.

The communique reads, “The council agreed that the FME in collaboration with Nigeria Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) should present a memorandum on the developed National Language Policy for presentation to the Federal Executive Council, (FEC) for consideration and approval, as a reference document for use in Nigeria by all stakeholders.”
