In a bid to address the issue of shortage of teachers in the State, Plateau State Government has recruited 5,253 Teachers.
The Executive Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board, Prof Mathew Sule praised the Government over the concern for the education sector; stating that, about 700 teachers also received training to upgrade their skills to ensure quality education for tomorrow’s leaders.
Sule said that this training saw limelight as a result of accrued concerns of the Government over the academic ability of some students in the State.
“We visited some primary schools and discovered that many of the pupils in the senior classes cannot read or write”
“As part of efforts to address the situation, SUBEB organised a three-day training in March on `Jolly Phonics’ for 700 teachers across the state”
The three-day training which has taken place already will help the educational incapabilities of Students and Pupils in the State.
