Bauchi govt to separate boys from girls in secondary school 


The Bauchi State Commissioner for Education, Aliyu Tilde, said the state government has concluded plans to separate boys and girls students in secondary school.

The governor stated this while addressing newsmen after the State Executive Council (SEC) meeting in Bauchi, noting that the idea was to address moral decadence, which he said has become prevalent among students of secondary schools.

He said, “The most important thing is that we don’t want to undo the progress that we have made in the past on girl-child education by allowing this trend to continue.

“We came up with an idea, let us extend that 1978 abrogation of core education policy to cover our day secondary schools as well, wherever and whenever it is possible.

“Wherever is possible is talking about the geography and whenever is possible is talking about the distribution in time. That is, maybe it is possible tomorrow or not in terms of separating them completely.

“Wherever is possible is where perhaps we have two-day secondary schools within the same vicinity, we’ll allocate one to girls and the other to boys.

Mr Tilde further said, “parents would be extremely happy about the move, adding that even those that were reluctant to allow their wards to proceed to Senior Secondary School levels, would be encouraged to allow them to go.”
