It is obvious that there are many corrupt practices going on in secondary schools. These practices which are not healthy to secondary schools can be reduced. The solutions are as follow:
(1) Quality Education
(2) Having qualified and certified Teachers
(3) Culture of Accountability
(4) Adequate Payment
The government and individuals that have private schools should do well to make sure that quality education is given to the students. This will make students to be intelligent and avoid the attitude of paying bribes to either internal or external teachers before they can make it in crucial examinations.
Having qualified and certified Teachers
The blind cannot in any way lead the blind. In the same way, some teachers are like the blind leading the students that do not know much on some subjects. Schools should employ teachers who are sound academically and morally. Doing this will make the students learn what they need to learn and also be able to defend themselves academically during examinations.
Culture of Accountability
It is not only to our political leaders that we need to talk about accountability. Accountability is to be promoted in secondary schools as well. Many secondary school's management have used the money allocated to them to develop secondary schools in their areas for personal expenses. This is bad and corrupt practice. They should be summoned by the academic board and asked how they spent the money allocated to them.
Teaching in secondary schools can be made interesting and competitive if the teachers are paid well. Both governments of different states and private owners should pay the teachers well. This will make the teachers to have enough money to spend and avoid corruption in schools.
