The Oyo State Government has signed an agreement with the Faculty of Education, University of Ibadan (UI) to strengthen the inspection of curriculum delivery in public primary and secondary schools in the state.
The partnership, which will see members of the faculty conduct independent inspection of teachers in the discharge of their duties, is expected to improve quality assurance in public schools in the state.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi explained that the new initiative was among several taken by his administration to redress the abysmal failure of public school pupils in public examinations.
“The recurring abysmal failure of Oyo State students in pre-tertiary institutions public examinations has continuously called for credible and laudable intervention to halt the ugly trend,” he said.
The Governor further explained that the poor state of education in the state necessitated the education summit held last year during which stakeholders came up with ideas to rescue the situation.
