Teach­ers task FG on chal­lenges

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Abubakar Haruna

Teach­ers from var­i­ous schools across the coun­try have chal­lenged the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to take proac­tive mea­sures to ad­dress chal­lenges fac­ing teach­ing in the coun­try.

Some of the teach­ers who spoke to Daily Trust in Abuja, said that even as they are the pil­lars of ed­u­ca­tion, they are of­ten for­got­ten.

Ac­cord­ing to Bora Madalin, a teacher from Edo State, lack of a con­ducive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment, poor salary pack­age and short­age of learn­ing ma­te­ri­als are some of the ma­jor chal­lenges fac­ing teach­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to her, if salary is re­viewed and in­creased, all the is­sues fac­ing the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor would be solved.

But Bamg­bose Grace, a teacher from Delta State called on the gov­ern­ment to train them on the newly in­tro­duced cur­ricu­lum.

She how­ever stressed the need for pro­vid­ing text books for the teach­ers to en­able them im­pact good knowl­edge to the stu­dents.

Ac­cord­ing to Musa Ibrahim Dam­ban from Bauchi State, the gov­ern­ment would not achieve bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion with­out ad­dress­ing prob­lems of teach­ers in the coun­try and also called for a bet­ter salary pack­age, a po­si­tion col­lab­o­rated by Ya’u T.K also from the state.
