Osun Sets to Train 2,000 Teachers on Modern Teaching Techniques
The Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) is set to train 2,000 school teachers in the state on modern teaching techniques.
The Permanent Secretary of the board, Alhaji Fatai Kolawole, who made this known in an interview with reporters in Osogbo, stated that the paucity of funds in the state would not prevent the board from training and re-training its teachers.
He explained that the state government, irrespective of its financial restraints, placed premium on qualitative education through competent teaching staff.
According to him, the more exposed teachers become in diverse fields, the better for pupils and students and the greater the hope for a better future.
He reiterated the resolve of the state government in redefining the tenets of education in all ramifications to prepare students for a better future and make them responsible to the nation.
Kolawole maintained that the development of infrastructure in all schools across the state was to aid the process of learning.
He also said that more than N6 billion had so far been expended on the construction of schools.
