Lagos insists education policy review process is open

The Lagos State Government has said the process of reviewing the state’s 30-year-old education policy is open and transparent, insisting that the stakeholders’ meeting was aimed at subjecting the new document to public scrutiny. The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs. Adebunmi Adekanye who made this clarification, revealed that the stakeholders’ meeting is the fourth level of the engagements, noting that the process had started with the Need Analysis. She explained: “The second step was the Policy Contact, which was an outreach for the experts and key stakeholders by the ministry in January 2016.

The third stage was the Research and Drafting process where the Ministerial Establishment and education experts were engaged in a three-day retreat between December 14 and 16, 2017.” On which step that will follow the stakeholders’ forum, she said the document would go through a second stage of drafting where all the contributions from the consultation forum and others that might come in form of written documents will be considered. She said the document is still open to suggestion, adding that, even though the draft could not be released to everyone, experts and stakeholders are at liberty to suggest input due to their experience on the field.

The second and last stages, according to her, are the presentation to the State Executive Council for approval and subsequent presentation of the final document to the public. While adding that the various steps had been diligently and painstakingly followed, she pointed out that until the last two steps had been taken, the document is still open to ideas as nothing is shrouded in secrecy.
