An educationist, Mrs Oluwakemi Waniko, says poor  tutoring on  spellings in schools is  a major factor for the falling standard of education in the country.

Waniko said this on Tuesday  at the fifth edition of the  Scholars Quiz Primary Spelling Competition in Ota, Ogun.

She said that 25 primary schools with two participants each represented  schools in the competition.

Waniko, who was the organiser, said that the competition was evolved  out of the desire to reduce the rate of failure in public  examinations,  especially  in English Language.

The educationist  said the competition would help address the challenge posed by the craze for sms usage through  cell phones  which manifest in abbreviations.

“ It is pertinent that we take seriously the effect of incorrect spellings and wrong usage in order to reduce the mass failure in our educational system today,’’ she said.

Waniko also said that there was the need for more academic competitions  that could help children boosts their  performance in school

“We want to see how we can help our children at this tender age to develop their spelling skills so as to improve the standard of education in the country,’’ she said.

She said the first edition of the Scholars Quiz Spelling Competition was held in Kwara in 2013, adding that efforts were on to enhance the scope of the initiative to include nursery pupils.

Waniko, however,  urged the Federal Government to increase the  budgetary allocation to the  education sector  to achieve meaningful national development.

She also implored corporate organisations across the country to support laudable programmes like the quiz competition that could boost  national development.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kingdom Way School, Ota,  emerged the overall winner, with Little Saint Private Schools, Ota, coming second while  Bells Nursery and Primary Schools, Ota, clinched   the third position.

The overall winner got a trophy, plaque and N10, 000 cash, while the first and second runner up got a plaque and N5, 000 cash.
