QUACKS HAVE TAKEN OVER TEACHING PROFESSION ? NUT
« on: August 26, 2008, 01:23:54 PM »
The Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Enugu State chapter, Dr. Uchey Agboeze, has said that about 20 per cent of teachers in the state are non-professionals.

He noted that this was a source of concern to his union.

He stated that the profession had been overrun by people who lacked the requisite qualifications, but who claimed to be teachers, describing such people as mercenaries.

Agboeze said this in an interview with our correspondent in Enugu on Monday.

He stressed that the qualification for teachers in the country was the Nigerian Certificate in Education which every teacher must possess, adding that the outlook of teacher?s qualification in the state is ideal as most of them had the basic qualification.

He welcomed the dual salary scale for professional and non-professional teachers which, according to him, would spur those who are yet to qualify to enroll for remedial programmes.

He maintained that Enugu State had enough teachers but that the number of teachers was decreasing due to brain drain, retirement, death and the desire for better paying jobs.

Agboeze described teachers as progressive minds who were always thirsting for knowledge, adding that they always enrolled for sandwich and professional courses during holidays to improve themselves.

He said, ?If you don?t study a course with education bias, you are not a teacher; you are a mercenary and we don?t want mercenaries in the profession. Go and obtain the necessary qualifications to become a professional teacher.?
