Kano SUBEB reveals teacher shortage as key issue in educatio

The Kano State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, has expressed concern over the poor quality of education in the state, attributing the problem to a lack of adequately trained teachers

Rabi'u Sale Gwarzo, Permanent Member 1 on the board, made the remark at a roundtable on teacher recruitment and deployment, organized by Partnership for Learning for All in Nigeria, PLANE, held in Kano on Tuesday.

According to him, the quality of educational delivery across the state is seriously deficient in several aspects, including low commitment from teachers.

Other factors affecting the quality of education in the state, he said, included low quality of teachers, inadequacy of female teachers in rural areas as well as a shortage of teaching and learning materials.

"These challenges resulted in jeopardizing the education system in the state. Today marks a significant milestone in our collective journey towards embracing opportunities presented by PLANE in engaging stakeholders in constructive dialogue regarding the shortage of teachers in basic education.

"We are all aware that the educational issue has become a very important and crucial aspect of human development and every responsible government worldwide today has earmarked it as a key issue that needs serious attention, especially access, equity and quality.

The quality of educational delivery across the state is significantly deficient in several aspects, including an inadequate number of trained teachers, low teacher quality, a gender imbalance with insufficient female teachers in rural areas, low teacher commitment, and a shortage of teaching and learning materials.

"These challenges resulted in jeopardizing the education system in the state," he said.

However, according to him, the government has taken significant steps to address these problems.

Director Personnel, SUBEB, Mariya Hodi Adamu, while speaking revealed that SUBEB had implemented several strategies to address the challenges to teacher recruitment, aimed at ensuring quality education from the basic level.
