Borno State Government, on Sunday, announced that public schools in the state would reopen in November 2014.
Mohammed Dongel, Chairman, Committee on the Resuscitation of Primary School Education, said that the schools would reopen in the first or the second week of November.
“We hope to reopen all public schools by the first or second week of November God willing. By then we hope to have put in place all necessary infrastructure and instruction materials for conducive teaching and learning,” he said.
Dongel also noted that the committee would introduce measures to enhance school enrollment in the state.
“We plan to introduce various measures to encourage parents to send their children and wards to school. The measures will also help entice pupils who are enrolled in school to remain,” he added.
Dongel said the committee would pay periodic visits to schools to ensure implementation of government plans on increased school enrollment.
It could be recalled that public schools in the state were shut on March 14, after deadly attacks by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.Follow Us on Social Media
