Hundreds of school buildings in Lagos, Lagos State, and throughout the country are literally falling apart. Majority of students in Lagos attend schools under conditions that are unhealthy, uncomfortable, and unsafe. Conditions in school buildings are so bad that it poses health and safety hazards ranging from crumbling buildings, leaky roofs, with rodents and other crawlers roaming freely in classrooms. All over the place, aging buildings are not getting needed repairs or being rebuilt. Money meant for maintenance and construction of school buildings ended up in private pockets. As a result, the climate in which our children learn and teachers work is deteriorating and its taking a toll.
