EDUCATION: Deputy Governor Urges Teachers To Brace Up In Bringing Discipline Back To Schools


The Deputy Governor of the State of Osun who is also the Commissioner for Education, Otunba Grace Titi-Laoye Tomori has advised parents in the state to ensure adequate training and monitoring of their children in line with the ethos of Omoluabi noting that charity begins at home.

Otunba Tomori gave this advice during an unscheduled visits to the palace of the Ogiyan of Ejigbo, Oba Omowonuola Oyeyode Oyesosin, Ejigbo Baptist High School and Nigeria Union of Teachers, (NUT) House, in Ejigbo.

Otunba Tomori, expressed happiness on seeing students back in school and the Principal of Baptist High School, Ejigbo Comrade Layi Oguntola in good condition after the crisis that rocked the school.  She said the government of the State of Osun would not condole any act of indiscipline from any student and condemned the ugly incident in its entirety as a gross act of indiscipline from the students.

She stressed that before the occurrence of the incident at Ejigbo Baptist High School, indiscipline among the students had been identified in the schools and government had put in place necessary machinery to address the situation. Otunba Tomori noted that the consequence of indiscipline, thuggery
and hooliganism will be grave if unchecked. She therefore appealed to the teachers to see the students as their children and urged them to brace up in bringing discipline back to the schools.
