Lagos Bars Under-Age Students in Public Schools
Lagos State Government has said no underage pupil would henceforth be eligible for admission into any public secondary schools in the state without completing primary six.
Meantime, a standing committee to harmonise the school calendar, curriculum and time- table for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (Junior Senior Secondary JSS111) of public and private schools in the state would be set up soon.
The state Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye, who disclosed, weekend during a stakeholders’ session with school proprietors, affirmed that the era of admitting underage children into secondary schools in the state was over.
