Lagos sets new rule on transfer of students in public schools

To provide quality education to residents, the Lagos State Government has set new rule for the transfer of students in public schools in the state. The state government has, therefore, stopped the transfer of students into junior secondary class two or senior secondary class two.

Giving reasons for the new rule, the Chairperson, State Universal Basic Education Board, Mrs. Gbolahan Daodu, at an interactive session with representatives of Head-teachers and Parents’ Forum of each public primary school in the state, said government is committed to providing quality education to students in the state, and the new rule would help achieve that.

“We had to stop the transfer of students from other schools, and outside the state, into JSS 2 and SS 2 because aside from compounding the infrastructural challenges we face, a lot of the parents falsify the documents they present to us.

“Some of the parents connive with the head-teachers of the schools and admit students who failed woefully in their former schools or have never been in secondary school into JSS1 or SS2. This negates the education policy thrust of this administration.
