The Lagos State Government is taking steps to tackle the issue of overpopulation in public schools within the state. Mrs. Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, the Director General of the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), emphasized the government’s commitment to providing quality education for students.

The OEQA DG addressed the teacher-student ratio recommended by the National Education Policy, which suggests ratios of 1:40 for secondary schools, 1:35 for primary schools, and 1:25 for preschoolers. She explained that the government is constructing new schools in areas with overcrowded schools and hiring additional qualified teachers. Moreover, the existing teachers are being trained in effective classroom management techniques.

Acknowledging the high demand for enrollment in government schools in Lagos State, Seriki-Ayeni emphasized that while the state is populous, quality education remains a priority. She emphasized that both access and quality are essential and that the government is focused on achieving both. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration is actively working to build new schools, decongest existing ones, and ensure students have comfortable learning environment.

Seriki-Ayeni highlighted the government’s efforts to employ more qualified teachers to maintain the quality of education delivery. She stressed that the administration is dedicated to providing quality education without compromising on standards.

The Lagos State Government has chosen this strategy to address overpopulation in its public schools in order to enhance the overall quality of education in the state.
