Ebonyi State government has approved the upgrade of 39 secondary schools in the state into Model Schools to serve as moral reset factories for the children of the state.

The Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Mr Jude Chikadibia Okpor, disclosed this on Wednesday, while briefing journalists on the outcome of Tuesday’s State Executive Council Meeting – the first for the year.

Okpor said that the state Executive Council also approved the introduction of the Spelling Bee, a perimeter survey of public primary and secondary schools in the state to avoid encroachment, which according to him, is gradually becoming a recurrent issue in state-owned facilities.

His words: “Keeping to the tenets of His Excellency’s People’s Charter of Needs policy, especially in the area of quality education, the EXCO after thorough deliberation, approved the upgrade of thirty-nine (39) Secondary Schools in the state to Model Schools, with each local government allocated three. The schools at completion will not only be citadels of learning but will serve as moral reset factories for Ebonyi children.
