Kaduna Govt Merges Almajiri Schools With Formal Education

Shehu Muhammad-Makarfi, the Kaduna State Commissioner for Education, says the state government will integrate Almajiri Schools into the formal education system.

He made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while inspecting 2018/2019 Common Entrance Examination in Zaria zone on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the commissioner visited Barewa College, Science Secondary School, Kufena and Alhudahuda College, Zaria.

Mr Muhammad-Makarfi said the government would discuss with Quranic teachers to assuage their fears and agree on a format for the full integration of the Almajiri schools.

“We want to meet them in order to identify problems and agree on ways to address them for the smooth integration of Islamic schools into formal education.”

He said that part of the government’s plan was for the Almajiri school students to attend formal schools in the morning.

“The Almajiris will be allowed to do their normal Qur’anic studies but they will be taught English and Mathematics, from there we will get to know their actual problems,” he said
