Poor management is a venom if not immediately address in any business, as such like in competitive business like school, can impede the growth of a school, and can move further to destroy the school eventually. so is important that every school use a business like approach in day to day running of their school. 


2. Location

Among other things, one of the great thing that makes one of the world most successful company great, Starbucks, a company that sell coffee, is location. location in these context, does not just talk about   where or how far your school is located from the population, it talks about your environment, what measure that your school has put in place to make sure that your school environment is not just exceptional, but also safe. 90% of parents that sends their kids to schools, one of the basic factor they consider, how safe the environment of the school and the policies that the school has put in place to make that their children are safe. Do more to ensure safety in your environment and also let parents know  what your school has put in place to ensure the safety of their children, and watch your school grow.

A school that fails to attract talents will not be around enough.

4. No Online Presence

Science have shown that most deadly disease that kills a man, don't just start manifesting its symptoms on the day it infected its victim, HIV for instance can stay up to five to ten years before even its first symptoms, in business, most revolution that starts don't start having effect not on till it has taken over, today in Nigeria more than 78 million people are online, your school not having a website is one of the main reason why you are not found and cannot be seen, and as such no one is coming. Website in this context, don't just mean having an online catalogue that displays your basic school information, it goes further to having what is called an online presence, your school investing in an online school management software, that provides a simple way to automate your result and also makes this result available that parents and students can access it without having to move an inch from their home, any where and any time. this will position your school as leader and thus gain most of the trust you needed to attract greater number of students to your school.

According to Wikipedia, The term "software multitenancy" refers to a software architecture in which a single instance of software runs on a server and serves multiple tenants. A tenant is a group of users who share a common access with specific privileges to the software instance. With a multitenant architecture, a software application is designed to provide every tenant a dedicated share of the instance - including its data, configuration, user management, tenant individual functionality and non-functional properties. Multitenancy contrasts with multi-instance architectures, where separate software instances operate on behalf of different tenants. By giving companies, access to a tenant through a subdomain of choice, will help to personalise the experience more and gives a sense of ownership to each tenant.

Top 4 Ways To Stop Mass Assignment Attack in ASP.NET Core MVC

To demonstrate how mass attack work, take for instance a web application, that has many users with different level of privileges and roles on the website. Each user is restricted on some point on what and what not to do while on the website, with the admin as the only user that have absolute role to control and do all things in the website. With mass attack a user can simply take over the role of the admin in the website and start doing things that is outside his roles and privileges.

For Instance, Let say you have a model:

public class UserModel
{
public string U…
