The Federal Government, through the Federal Ministry of Education, has commenced plans to ensure that four biological children of teachers in its unity schools enjoy free secondary education.
Edugist gathered that the development will start during the 2023/2024 academic session.
The plan was disclosed in a statement on Friday.
The document was titled “Revitalisation of teaching profession.”
“Recall that in October 2020, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the policy document for the revitalisation of the teaching profession in the country at the basic and secondary levels.
“The policy is now an Act of the National Assembly; the elongation of years of service has now been implemented; provision has been made in the 2022 Budget for bursary allowances for deserving students in education courses across our universities; free education for four biological children of staff in our unity colleges nationwide is with effect from the 2023/2024 academic session. Relevant departments are already working on modalities for inclusion in the 2023 Budget,” the statement read.
