Govt stops lending teachers to private schools
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.
