In its bid to maintain all-round continuous learning for private and public school students at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including co-curricular activities, inclusive learning and other educational contents, the Lagos State Government has launched a well packaged educational television programme tagged, “The Total Education Show”.
The Honourable Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, stated this in her office at the Secretariat, Alausa, on Tuesday. She explained that the programme is an intervention idea of the Ministry aimed at enriching the students with educational programmes asides the existing curriculum of daily radio, television and online classes.
According to the Commissioner, “Education is not just about academic subjects alone but inculcating co-curricular activities to engage the students and make learning fun for them.”
Adefisayo stressed that Education is not balanced if it is only concentrated on cognitive development rather than behavioural, entrepreneurial, analytical, experimental and social aspects for improvement of the learner. “All factors must be encompassed to broaden the horizon of the Child,” She added.
She further disclosed the focus areas of the programme which include Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STREAM), Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) and Child Protection Advocacy against Child Abuse, adding that this medium provides an opportunity for the child to be enlightened and learn other skills for a futuristic purpose.
