All schools are currently facing an agony of life, while the private school means of survival now in pause over the novel virus spreading like the the word Soccer.
The Lagos State President of the association, Mr Amusa Olawale, at a briefing appealed to the Lagos State Government to come to the aid of school owners in the state
“The NAPPS, being a partner in progress in this sector, has virtually been neglected. As a body, we have severally and collectively appealed to the state government to do an overall review of the administration of schools, so that proprietors and teachers alike will share in the dividends of democracy which as at now is only being enjoyed by government schools
“Among others, we had in our previous memo to government solicited assistance in the following areas; proactiveness in the management of COVID-19 pandemic, palliatives aimed at cushioning the effect of the lock-down on the citizens, our teachers inclusive. This will no doubt enhance the total benefit to the teachers and parents. Since private schools and staff receive salaries from school fees, apparently a lull in this sector at this time is imminent as parents withheld the payment of their wards outstanding school fees”
