The Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare has warned teachers who break the teaching norm by abandoning their primary assignments to student teachers, stressing that no responsible Government would fold its arm and allow those who are not ready to work to remain in the system.
Prof. Muoboghare gave the warning when he paid an unscheduled visit to Issele-Uku Technical College where out of 48 teaching staff; only two teachers were in the classrooms teaching.
The Commissioner disclosed that all teachers in the State- owned technical colleges will be sent back to the Post Primary Education Board (PPEB) as soon as the board for Technical Education is established.
He noted that the new board for technical education when in place would recruit its teachers for the technical schools as most of the teachers in the technical schools presently had no business being there in the first place.
The Commissioner condemned the non-utilization of the facilities in the various workshops, and wondered why the equipment was left idle when there were students offering the courses in the school, and also directed the Principal, Mr. Richard Omenonye to ensure that the workshops were revived and put into proper use for the benefit of the students.
