World Teachers’ Day : NAPPS seeks increased synergy with Imo government



The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has called for increased synergy between private schools in Imo and the state government.

NAPPS chairman in Imo, Mr Theo Mbakwe said this while addressing newsmen in Owerri on Tuesday as part of activities marking World Teachers’ Day.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Day was set aside in 1966 following recommendations concerning the status of teachers by the International Labour Organisation and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

The theme for year 2021, “Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery” was chosen by the United Nations in recognition of teachers’ determined and diligent efforts in the crucial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mbakwe said that improved synergy between government and private school owners will consolidate efforts made by private schools toward actualising quality service delivery.

He added that NAPPS had put policies and programmes in place to ensure that quality education was not compromised in private schools.

He called for routine inspection as well as regular monitoring and supervision of private schools by relevant agencies of government.

According to him, this would improve quality service delivery in private schools and make for a more robust relationship between government and the private sector.

” Quality is our watchword and to this end, we have put policies and programmes in place to ensure delivery of quality education in private schools.

” We call for greater synergy with government and more proactive measures to ensure that our activities are supervised in the interest of the education sector.

” As teachers, we believe that the society is what we mold the children to become and this is why we are not compromising quality “, he said. (NAN)
