Male students in Bauchi State’s public schools took to the streets on Monday to protest the separation of boys and girls in secondary schools
The students claimed that the presence of female students in their class enhances their performance, adding that the new policies could cause the opposite effect on them.
Bauchi State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Aliyu Tilde, had last week said the government resolved to separate male and female students in public secondary schools due to moral decadence observed among them on social media, which has become prevalent in mixed schools.
Tilde said the government had decided to revisit the 1978 policy that abrogated co-education in the state.
