Govt stops lend­ing teach­ers to pri­vate schools

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Abubakar Auwal, Sokoto

The Sokoto State Gov­ern­ment will stop lend­ing its science and tech­nol­ogy teach­ers to pri­vate schools.

The act­ing Com­mis­sioner, Science and Tech­nol­ogy, Al­haji Muham­mad Bello Idris, dis­closed at a min­is­te­rial brief­ing or­ga­nized by the Nige­ria Union of Jour­nal­ists (NUJ), Sokoto State Coun­cil, that most of the pri­vate schools in the state lacked teach­ers that could teach science and tech­nol­ogy sub­jects, thus re­ly­ing on the min­istry for help, which the gov­ern­ment could not con­tinue to con­done.

“Some of them don’t have qual­i­fied teach­ers to teach these sub­jects. They are just es­tab­lished as a profit mak­ing ven­ture and the stan­dard of their ed­u­ca­tion is not mea­sur­able with huge amountS of money they are col­lect­ing from par­ents,” he said.
