The State Government has expressed concern about the acute shortage of qualified teachers to teach at the Secondary School level in the State.
This informed the need for more qualified teachers in the next few years. It is no doubt that without professionally qualified teachers, the dream of building a globally competitive and development driven education system that instills discipline and technical know-how to our teeming younger generation would continue to be a pipedream.
The availability of qualified and competent teachers, their continuous training and retraining would have to be emphasized to complement other inputs, in order to come up with quality secondary education achievement.
However, government is more concerned about the quality of teachers, more disturbing is a wide gab between the number of qualified teachers required and current number of teachers available in our secondary schools especially in rural areas. The state needs some teachers in the next four years.
However, when redistribution and training of teachers across the state is critically examined and carried out, it would place more responsibilities and higher expectations on the Government i.e both Ministry of Education and the TESCOM in terms of the roles they would be playing in providing more qualified teachers, infrastructure, instructional materials and proper inspection/supervision of schools in the State.
