The Chairman, Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye Local Council Development Area, Hon. Razak Ajala, has stressed the need to engage retired teachers to share their wealth of experience for the advancement of education in the country.
He assured stakeholders of qualitative programs that would advance education at the grassroots.
He spoke at an Education Stakeholders Summit in Mushin, Lagos.
The stakeholders included the Parents’ Forum, teachers, school heads, and retired teachers, among others.
Ajala noted that when stakeholders were involved in education, the work of government at all levels will be easier.
“All stakeholders, the teachers, the parents’ forum, the retired teachers, school heads, and all have roles to play. Therefore, they will make the work of government at every level easier. With their active participation, the bottom-up development approach/strategy can be utilized,” he said.
He lauded the stakeholders for being active and seeking solutions to challenges they were facing.
Education Secretary, Mushin Local Government Education Authority, Mrs. Olufemi Akinlude, who noted that education is a continuous process, said improving education required painstaking and collaborative efforts.
She, however, lauded Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his efforts towards improving education in the state, adding that all schools have felt the impact of his administration.
