The founder of Charles Dale Memorial International School, Port Harcourt, Mrs. Victoria Diete-Spiff, has said parents are retrieving their children from private schools because of the economic crisis in the country.

Diete-Spiff expressed concerns that parents are now taking their children to public schools, adding that private schools are facing hard times.

Diete-Spiff, who spoke after receiving Academic Icon Award from National Association of Oduduwa Students during the 10th anniversary of the institution, also urged government to give grants to private schools.

The proprietor noted that private schools were the drivers of academic excellence in a nation and that they need encouragement.

Diete-Spiff said, “Most schools proprietors are anticipating that the recession is going to be rough.

“Most parents, during this recession, are having financial problem. Most of them told us that if the economy becomes better they will return their children to school. They are retrieving their children.

“Private school is the bedrock of education in Nigeria and for somebody to withdraw his ward from private school, it means a lot.

“Government should improve the standard of education in Nigeria, at least by providing grants for private schools. In other countries, the government gives grants to private schools, but it is not done here.

“Government should do what needs to be done. Qualitative education is necessary because that is what the country needs for development.”Private schools feel recession as parents withdraw kids
