Parents, educators suggest ways to tackle bullying in schools

Parents and educators under the aegis of Concerned Parents and Educators Initiative (CPE) have suggested ways to address critical issues in the education sector, particularly bullying. 

In a communique issued after a virtual meeting with key stakeholders, the founder of CPE, Mrs Yinka Ogunde, stated that the issue at stake goes beyond the education sector only, and stressed the need for urgent national re-orientation.

The meeting was held to discuss some of the critical issues that the Dowen College incident had brought to light.

It would be recalled that a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lagos died on November 30, 2021, from injuries he sustained after allegedly being beaten by his senior colleagues in school.

Parts of the suggestions by participants at the meeting on how to tackle problems encountered by Nigerian children in boarding schools include: setting up of monitoring criteria and a formidable task force to ensure the safeguarding of boarding schools as well as regular unplanned visits to boarding schools by the Ministry of Education while ratings should be made public.
