To ensure school children continue learning during their forced holidays, the Lagos State Education Commissioner, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, said the Ministry of Education had made arrangements for teachers to teach core subjects to help SS3 candidates preparing for the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Public and private primary and secondary schools in the state were directed to shut down from March 23, 2020 as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19.
Speaking on a programme, Lagos Today, aired on LTV on Thursday, Mrs. Adefisayo said the teachers would pre-record lessons in eight subjects for broadcast on radio, television and online.
The subjects are: English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Literature-In-English, Financial Accounting and Economics.
Mrs. Adefisayo urged both public and private schools to comply with the closure aimed at avoiding the spread of the Coronavirus.
“You know in our classes there are lots of children and children will always play with each other. So it is to protect our children; make sure they are in all gatherings that we agreed that all schools should just shut down,” she said.
