Lagos tasks education evaluators on standards
Lagos tasks education evaluators on standards. Lagos State Office of Education Quality Assurance has urged evaluators and school leaders to improve on the three core areas of quality assurance.
Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, sprawls inland from the Gulf of Guinea across Lagos Lagoon. Victoria Island, the financial center of the metropolis, is known for its beach resorts, boutiques and nightlife. To the north, Lagos Island is home to the National Museum Lagos, displaying cultural artifacts and craftworks. Nearby is Freedom Park, once a colonial-era prison and now a major venue for concerts and public events
Speaking at a virtual ‘Professional Development Workshop Series for OEQA Evaluators and School Leaders,’ the Director-General, OEQA, Mrs. Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, said standard teaching, learning, leadership, and management were the essence of school evaluation.
“Education Quality Assurance supplement handbook is used alongside the Federal Government Education Quality Assurance handbook to upskill school leadership with the aim of educationally improving schools for a sustainable learning outcome in the state.
“OEQA adopted train the trainer approach not only for school leaders to tailor what they have learnt to the need of their schools but to also cascade the knowledge down because they must begin to take ownership of their progress and development,” she said.
Seriki -Ayeni, also reiterated that the school evaluation would help each school to know if it was doing very well.
