The Lagos State Government says it has equipped all its 31 inclusive schools with learning materials to enhance education for physically challenged pupils.

Wahab Alawiye-King, Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB), made this known at a news conference in Lagos on Tuesday.

Mr Alawiye-King said since the board’s mandate was “leaving no child behind”, the materials will help them “discover their innate abilities, thereby preparing them for a better future.”

According to the LASUBEB chairman, “We are not discriminatory and prejudicial to people with disabilities, and that is why we keep improving the 31 inclusive units and schools because we want those special-need pupils to see themselves as part of the society.

“We also have about five special need schools for those who must be given special consideration.

“We train our teachers specially for them to teach this category of pupils and we have been able to develop the cooperative teaching manual for our teachers,” he said.

Mr Alawiye-King further said there was the mid-day meal for special-need children, fully sponsored by the state government.

He described the basic education for pupils in the state as a social service that required continuous investment if the best must be achieved.
