President Bola Tinubu has approved system-wide policies to overhaul the education sector towards improving learning and skill development, increasing enrolment, and ensuring the academic security of the nation’s children.

The president said the approved policies are captured as DOTS, an acronym representing: Data Repository, Out-of-School Children Education, Teacher Training & Development, and Skill Development & Acquisition.

Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement in Abuja said presently, there is paucity of coordinated, verifiable, and authentic data on all aspects of the education sector in Nigeria, which is critical for planning.

“This new data tracking architecture will enable the government to track the progress of students, thus having a clear data-driven mechanism for interventions, especially concerning out-of-school children, girls, and those with specific learning disabilities, among others,” he said.

The president also disclosed that the Federal Ministry of Education is already implementing the government’s policy through the activities of four of its agencies, adding that the system-wide policy will further enhance the education and training of the nation’s out-of-school children.
