The Lagos State Government has pledge to recruit new competent teachers needed for the inclusive schools.
This was revealed by the Commissioner for Education, Lagos State, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo while speaking at the 2020 convocation of Vocational Training Centre of Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind held in Lagos.
She said the state restated the commitment of the state government to recruit more teachers for special schools in Lagos State.
Wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr. Adejoke Sanwo-Olu represented by the wife of the Commissioner for Transport, Fatima Oladeinde.
Adefisayo, was reacting to a preliminary report by Centre for Citizen with Disabilities which revealed shortage of teachers in the inclusive schools in the state.
‘’One of our BOS Transformation Plan is to improve the quality of teaching and learning taken place in the special schools in Lagos State.”
We have a programme to improve the resources we give to the special schools and recruit more teachers.
Every time, we are recruiting now, we are recruiting teachers for the inclusive schools, not people who are disable but essentially, people who are competent and qualified,” she said.
