- Many private schools are currently facing serious hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic
- In response, some Nigerians have started rising up to help them
- Hopefully, more people will join them in helping the teachers
Being a private school teacher during the coronavirus period is one of the hardest things a Nigerian can face. Most schools, since they are not earning money have put all their employees in limbo and as a result, turned them into blatant beggars to survive.
As a result of the dire situation faced by these teachers, some Nigerians have started raising funds to help them.
One of such gesture to help private school teachers could be found on Twitter when @Mazigburugburu1 raised N400,000, saying this will be shared at N25,000 each to 16 private school teachers, The Nation reports.
He said that they must, however, show proof that they were private school teachers.
Hopefully, in the spirit of giving, many Nigerians will rise up to show more support for private school teachers.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the founder of Slum2School, Otto Orondaam, has proffered a very big solution to the problem of learning in this period when children are forced out of school by the coronavirus.
He announced his organisation has made it possible for 948 kids to learn remotely with their first Virtual Learning Classroom in Africa.
Otto said his aim is to reach 10,000 kids during this season. Impossible is really nothing.
Legit.ng earlier reported that secondary schools under the control of the federal government will not be reopening for the forthcoming WAEC examinations, the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, announced.
Top presidential aide Tolu Ogunlesi made this known via a thread of tweets on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening, July 8.
The minister also called on the management of WAEC to suspend the exams just as he urged state governments to toe the federal government's line.
The tweets partly read: "There’s an EDUCATION UPDATE: Minister of Education has just announced that schools under control of the Federal Govt will NOT be reopening for the forthcoming WAEC Exams. Says WAEC should suspend exams, and urges State Govts to toe the FG line."
