A non-governmental Organisation, Concerned Parents and Educators (CPE) has called on the Federal Government to declare war on exam malpractice to save the sector from collapse.

Rising from a meeting of key stakeholders on the state of the nation’s educational system and how to revamp it, the group lamented that examination malpractice has eaten deep into the fabric of society and has compromised the life of millions of students.

While lamenting that the scourge of malpractice has eaten deep into all segments of the society, the concerned parents called for the active engagement of government, private school owners, teachers, parents, law enforcement agencies, students and examination bodies to tackle the anomaly.

The forum called for the setting up of an “Examination police centre”, which would ensure that whistle blowers can provide information without fear.

The re-orientation of teachers, parents and school owners must also be undertaken as a matter of urgency.CPE also warned that the high level of examination malpractice going on in the country may affect human capital development as the country may find it difficult to catch up with the rest of the world.

One of the speakers, Mrs Funke Fowler-Amba advised schools to look for assessment methods that do not involve grading students by positions.

The representative of the National Association of proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) Gabriel Osa-Igbinjesu said the association is doing a lot of advocacy to ensure that its members fight against exam malpractice.

Another Speaker, Mr. Johnson Abbaly stressed the need for the education community to engage government to salvage the future of young children.

Abbaly reminded that paper qualification as prerequisite for employment in top organisations all over the world has been reduced.The founder of CPE Mrs Yinka Ogunde called on government and the National Orientation Agency (NOA) to come up with plans on how to tackle the scourge of exam malpractice.
