60% of basic level teachers are unqualified – Yobe SUBEB
From Sani Gazas Chinade, Damaturu
The Executive Chairman of the board, Prof. Musa Alabe stated this while speaking with journalists in Damaturu recently.
He pointed out that at the moment, about 60 per cent of teachers at basic level were unqualified, hence the resolve of the government to bridge the gap to be able to provide quality education to its people.
He explained that Governor Mai Mala Buni has approved that all unqualified teachers be transferred to other ministries where their services might be needed for them to be able to contribute their quota in other areas they would be capable.
He said in order to help actualize the state government’s vision of reviving the education sector, the board had developed a plan that would be put to use soon which would serve as roadmap towards addressing all identified challenges for improved service delivery.
He said already, they have commenced renovation of dilapidated structures and provision of chairs in schools across the state.
Prof. Alabe further assured that SUBEB in the state would continue to ensure strict compliance to work ethics by its staff and improved synergy with stakeholders for better results.
He also appealed to parents to key into the mission of the board aimed at revolutionising basic education in the state
