The chairman urged the minister of education and heads of other relevant agencies to address issues that would lead to a fall in the standard of education in the country.
He said strikes, insecurity, inadequate funding, and infrastructural facilities, among others, could be tackled with the commitment and cooperation of stakeholders, including NASS.
In a remark, the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, lamented that education was facing several challenges in the country.
The challenges, according to Mamman, include learning crisis, the growing number of out-of-school children and insecurity.
