Quality assurance units in education departments at federal and state levels have laid down basic infrastructure, including sanitation facilities, safe classrooms, water, electricity and laboratories that all schools must have.
Though the regulations apply to every school, most public schools lack the necessary infrastructure to offer quality education to learners.
One of such schools is Aperin Oniyere Commercial Grammar School, Orita Aperin, Ibadan South East Local Government Area, Oyo State, where there are no desks and chairs for students. In fact, students have no option than to place mats and pieces of fabrics, they bring from home on the bare floor to sit on. This negates the general belief of scholars that pillars of education are a combination of supporting environment, dedicated teachers and students who take joy in learning.
