The Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE) has warned proprietors, coordinators and operators of private Schools to desist from practices such as illegal operations among others.
In a press release issued to Foroyaa by MoBSE, private Schools should abstain from disregarding the National Curriculum and not registering for National Exams such as NAT, GABECE and WASSCE, and by hiring teachers who do not have the required qualifications and by not putting in place standard recording systems.
“The afore-mentioned practices violate the Education Act and the regulations governing the operations of private Schools. Disciplinary measures will be taken against those who fail to comply,” the release indicated; that the Ministry acknowledges and encourages those proprietors who comply and compliment the Ministry’s effort in providing quality education to every Gambian child.
