It has now become a violation for all public school teachers in the state of Ondo to enroll their children in private schools, the state government of Ondo said.

State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) chairman Hon Victor Olabimtan, who said in a statement, said the steps became necessary after the declining population of students in public primary schools across the state.

According to Olabimtan, in the statement signed by the head of the board’s press and information services, Bisi Agboola, the government expressed concerns about the development, despite investments in primary education across the state.

Agboola said that during a meeting with school principals in the state’s three senatorial districts, the president “raised eyebrows at the dwindling student population in public schools, despite the government’s efforts.

According to him, “Hon Olabimtan noted that henceforth teachers will be held responsible for any drop in enrollment in schools.

“The chairman of SUBEB strongly condemned the attitude of some teachers who bring their biological children to private schools and ruled that it has become an offense for public school teachers to transfer their departments to private schools.
