SUBEB AND UBEC INTRODUCE SCHOOL-TO-FARM PROGRAMME

The Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), in conjunction with the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), has introduced a School-to-Farm Programme in basic education to instill practical agricultural skills among learners in primary and junior secondary schools.

The Executive Chairman Ogun SUBEB, Dr. Femi Majekodunmi disclosed this during the Advocacy meeting of the Agriculture Education Training Programme (AETP) on the program's implementation framework held at NUT Hall in Kuto, Abeokuta.

Dr. Majekodunmi stated that the program would prepare pupils for lifelong learning, aligning with UBEC's mandate. He emphasized that in recent years, the teaching of agriculture as a subject has been predominantly theoretical and less practical. This theoretical-based approach leaves most learners unaware of what some agricultural products look like, with no idea of how they are grown, harvested, processed, or stored.

To address this issue, UBEC has allocated a certain percentage of the UBE Grant to the Agriculture Education Training Programme (AETP) to make Agricultural Science at the basic education level more practical and hands-on. According to him, the goal is to "equip learners with the necessary skills to stimulate self-employment, provide them with functional entrepreneurship and life skills, promote the dignity of labor and self-esteem, and expose them to the biological processes of agriculture."

Dr. Majekodunmi explained that the program's objective also includes familiarizing participants with approved guidelines, increasing their ability to carry out the program, sharing experiences, and adopting best practices.

The SUBEB boss added that students would also learn about raising chickens, rabbits, snails, and fisheries in addition to farming products like maize, cassava, yam, and vegetables. He stated that the program would also enhance the capacity of teachers and community members who would be involved in its implementation.

Dr. Majekodunmi further stated that it was anticipated that, by the end of the workshop, participants would have developed a framework to ensure the program's viability in various state divisions.

Additionally, Dr. Majekodunmi said that agricultural education would introduce students to a variety of job prospects, including agribusiness, agro-technology, agricultural engineering, sustainable farming methods, and rural development.

In his submission, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Professor Abayomi Arigbabu, represented by the Director of Primary Education, Mrs. Bamidele Makinde, said that effectively engaging children at a young age in agriculture would help them learn other important aspects of life, as agriculture is based on the cycle of how things grow, live, and die, which is a cycle all things go through.

In his remarks, SUBEB Board Secretary, Dr. Lawal Mukilai, pointed out that the initiative aimed to bridge the gap between theory and practice, between the classroom and the farm, and would empower learners with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the agricultural sector.

Participants at the advocacy meeting included UBEC, SUBEB, the Ministry of Agriculture, OGADEP, Ogun/Osun River Basin Authority, all Basic Education Stakeholders, Education Secretaries, Headteachers, and learners.
