Akwa Ibom sets to Implement One-Teacher-One-Subject Policy in Primary Schools
The Governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel, has stated that the state will soon implement the one-teacher-one-subject policy in public primary schools.
The governor who was represented by the Commissioner for Education, Mr. Aniekan Akpan, at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Eket during the inauguration of five renovated classrooms block, added that the policy was to ensure quality education.
According to him, a teacher that teaches different subjects is not making use of his knowledge well and not helping the system. “Rather than keeping one teacher to be a master of all or to be teaching all subjects, we better create professionalism and division of labour in teaching.
“From studies, we have discovered that is not really helping and preparing the children for further education. But they can still go round other classes to teach, we want to fully utilised the capacity of the teachers that we have in the primary school, for now they are not fully utilised,” he said.
The governor said that his administration was passionate about education and promised to support schools across the state.
