By Gabriel Chy Alonta
The proprietor of Calvary Schools, Okpoko, in Ogbaru local government area of Anambra state, Rev. Canon Christian Anumoka, has urged the state government to support private schools in the state to boost the standard of education.
He said that with adequate support and financial grants from the state government, private schools would be positioned to contribute better in reducing the number of out-of-school children.
Canon Anumoka, who made this call in an interview with Orient Daily, further harped on the need to inculcate morality in pupils from cradle, remarking that it should start from the private schools.
According to him, the state government should provide enabling environment for private schools to thrive. School management belongs to government, but it was the government’s inability to run it as supposed that brought in private owners.
“So, adequate efforts should be given to this private investors, especially the ones doing wonderfully well. Private schools remain the saviour of our rotten educational system”.
He further advised students to shun cultism and other related social ills, while regretting that “some primary school pupils are now belonging to cult groups. It is evil and we must fight it.
