The workshop with the theme; “Stakeholders Consultation on 2019 to 2028 Bayelsa State Education Sector Plan’’ was a critical session to plan, edit and chat a way for more development in the state education sector.
She said the key plans for the state were: education sector plan development, education management intervention system, early childhood development, primary education policy implementation, enrollment drive campaign among others.
Giwa-Amu noted that the process involved situation analysis, identification of weaknesses and strengths of key documents, which would serve and provide strategic direction for education planners at state and local government levels.
According to her, using evidence-based sector plan is key to addressing issues that will challenge the smooth functioning of the system.
