Annual School Census (ASC)
The Nigeria Education Management Information System (NEMIS) policy 2007 has stipulated the collection of comprehensive education data in every State every year through the ASC. Hence, the conduct of the ASC is a mandatory exercise for all the 36 States in Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). By and large, the ASC provides accurate and accessible data for proper planning, decision making and policy implementation. As usual, this 2019/2020 ASC exercise covers all basic and post basics schools as well as public and private schools across the 44 LGAs in the State. Now, the State has credible data for informed decisions in the Education Sector for the 2019/2020 session.
Furthermore, this 2019/2020 ASC Report will serve as a potential guide for the Sustainable Development (SDG) Goals; by providing baseline data and indicators particularly for Kano State and by extension aggregates to the National education database. The SDG 2030 Agenda in which the priority for education is placed under Goal 4 (SDG4) requires data to set National benchmarks for various targets to ensure proper accountability, measurement and evaluation of results.
