The Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, issued a directive from the Lagos State Government which has directed all pupils/students in public and private schools to stay at home following the tension generated by the #EndSARS protests.
Mrs Folasade Adefisayo said the safety of the pupils/students, parents, and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.
The Commissioner also encouraged schools to utilize other means of distance teaching and learning i.e radio, television, and online media as they have been doing during and post the recent COVID-19 lockdown.
She however advised parents to keep an eye on their wards and not allow them to be used as willing tools in the hands of those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem on the society.
According to Adefisayo, a new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.
