Kano government revokes licenses of private schools

Kano government revokes licenses of private schools

The Kano State government has taken a drastic step to improve the quality of education in the state.

This was made known by the special adviser to the State Governor on Private and Voluntary Institutions, Baba Abubakar Umar, on Saturday.

During a meeting with the proprietors of the private schools in the state, Umar said all the schools were expected to collect new registration forms to fill for new certificates to be issued.

The government revoked the licenses of several private schools that were found to be in breach of the terms and conditions of their license.

The move comes after an extensive review process by the state government. The review process revealed that many of the private schools in the state did not meet the standards set by the state government, including inadequate infrastructure, poorly qualified staff, and inadequate learning materials.

The state government has declared that all private schools must adhere to the state’s minimum standards for quality education, or risk losing their license. The government has also set up a task force to ensure that all schools follow the guidelines and regulations.

The special adviser pointed out that this was part of the state government’s commitment towards sanitising the private school operations and ensuring adherence to established laws and guidelines.

He charged the proprietors to pay their 10 per cent tax to the government as at when due for the progress of the sector, adding that his return to the position of managing the private schools should not lead to intimidation as he doesn’t have intention to victimise anyone.

He emphasised his stand for closing down any school that violates the operational laws of the state ranging from equipment, environment of operation, curriculum and academic calendar while revealing that a software had been developed to address all concerns from the government, school proprietors, parents and even job seekers in private schools.

The Kano State Government is hoping that the move will help to improve the quality of education in the state and ensure that all children have access to quality education. It remains to be seen how successful this policy will be in achieving this goal.
