The Osun State Government says its reversal of 4-5-3-4 introduced by the immediate past administration and the re-introduction of the 6-3-3-4 system of education had received the backing of the United Nations Children’s Fund.
The Chief Press Secretary to Osun State Governor Ismail Omipidan in a statement said this was disclosed in a letter by the UNICEF Field Officer in Akure Nigeria, Dr Tushar Rene, addressed to the Osun State Government.
The statement also said UNICEF commended the state government for the reintroduction of the Early Childhood Development Education, describing it as necessary for remarkable brain development.
Osun State Government had recently reversed nine policies, including common school uniform and 4-5-3-4 introduced by the immediate past administration.
