Prof. Josiah Ajiboye, Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) says a good training for teachers would help rebuild the country’s educational system. 

Ajiboye said this at the Teachers Day Symposium to commemorate the 2017 World Teachers Day in Abuja on Thursday.

The theme for this year’s celebration: “Teaching in Freedom: Empowering Teachers for the 21st Century Challenges’’.
According to him, a survey conducted in 2010 revealed that there were 207,818 unqualified teachers in the primary schools.

Ajiboye added that 259 teachers in another state among who were university graduates flunked a test meant for primary four pupils in 2008. He said all these were adding to the problems of ascertaining the quality of teachers in Nigeria.

He, therefore, called on the Federal Government to create a more conducive environment to enable teachers practice their profession. 

Ajiboye noted that many countries had not come to terms with the crucial strategic role that teachers play in the society.
