The face-lifts on the classrooms were carried out across the state, government officials relayed.
Senior Special Assistant on Education, Mr. Niyi Idowu said the vision of the Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola administration is to radically increase access to qualitative and quantitative Universal Basic Education, amongst other policies.
He said that vision led to the reclassification of schools, which in turn gave birth to massive social investments in the physical infrastructure of many schools in the state.
Rendering a report on school construction so far in the state, Idowu said, “most of the existing schools have been refurbished, while some others were newly built.
“20 blocks of 522 elementary school classrooms, 22 blocks of 748 middle schools classrooms and 40 blocks of 264 high schools classrooms have been refurbished in the past 5 years,” the special assistant stated.
He further revealed that a total of 55 new schools have been built.
He gave an analysis of the new schools built and completed so far to include 20 elementary schools, 22 middle schools, and 13 high schools.
