I have immense pleasure in welcoming you to the website of the Lagos Eko Secondary Education Project, a partnership between the Lagos State Government and the World Bank to enhance learning outcomes of the 639 public junior and senior secondary schools. The Lagos Eko Project complements efforts of the State Government towards improving the overall standard of education.
The website details information about the Lagos Eko Project’s work areas especially its programmes and activities in the schools, community and the Education Districts. It is user-friendly and easy to navigate as its process of development took cognizance of the varying needs of our numerous stakeholders.
At the Lagos Eko Project, we believe we are striving for excellence in our public schools and I am happy to say that the results of the standardized assessments conducted and analysed over the years have shown remarkable achievements in terms of learning gains. Besides academic achievement, schools are now committed to inculcating in all its students, strong ethical values of integrity, health and environmental awareness, leadership and respect. It is
noteworthy to mention that we are already seeing positive changes in attitudes and values attached to education by school managers, teachers and students especially in school attendance and motivation to achieve better results. These we will continue to reward on a yearly basis through the Governor’s Education Award.
The website is yours so own it and feel free to contribute your comments and suggestions towards its development. Have a pleasant experience!
