The Lagos State Government has announced plans to harmonise and standardise the academic calendars of public and private schools in the state.

The move, which is planned ahead of the 2023/2024 academic session, is to make sure that school children have the minimum standard of learning days and hours.

This was made known by the Director General, of the Office of Education Quality Assurance, Mrs Abiola Seriki-Ayeni while speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting.

The DG said: “Inasmuch as the calendar may seem like a very minute detail when it comes to larger issues that we have within the education space, the calendar is very important.

“Since the inception of the present administration in Lagos, the OEQA has been able to collaborate with our stakeholders to ensure that the calendar is enforced, that there is a greater understanding and that at the end of the day, everything concerning the calendar is to support things that occur within schools. This is to ensure that children have the minimum standard of learning days as well as hours and most importantly standardisation across the board not just in public schools but private schools as well.”

Mr Wahab Alawiye-King, the chairman of Lagos State Universal Basic Education, who was represented by Mrs Yetunde Kolade, a director of the agency, urged participants, particularly those from the private sector, to view the action not as a state matter but rather as a step in the general interest of the state’s educational sector.
