According to him, training improves teachers’ abilities and capabilities to teach the pupils and or students effectively.
“This training was organised for more than 200 primary school Mathematics and Science teachers across the state in order to boost the standard of education.
“This is part of Gov. Umaru Al-makura’s commitment to quality education, having trained and re-trained teachers on classroom management, computer studies and special education, among others.
“I want to urge you to use the lesson learnt to train other teachers in your various local government areas in order to let it reflect in the teaching of the pupils and students,” Abdullahi said.
He advised parents to give adequate priority to the education of their children so as to complement government’s efforts in improving on the standard of education.
Mr Isah Mohammed, a facilitator of the workshop, urged teachers to take the advantage of the programme in order to equip themselves with knowledge and skills.
Mohammed attributed poor performance of students to deficiencies in core subjects, especially Mathematics and other science subjects.
Responding, Mr Kasimu Aminu, a participant, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, lauded the State Government and the board for organising the training and called for its sustenance. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
