Mrs Nkechi Oguejiofor , An Administrator of Army Command Secondary School, Abuja , has urged the federal government of nigeria to use the national youth service corp (NYSC) as a platform to train fresh graduates to become good professional teachers.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja , Mrs Nkechi Oguejiofor Emphasised on the importance of this as well as the impact it will have on the education sector in general.
“For the nation’s education sector to move to the desired level, there is the need for incompetent teachers to be flushed out of the system and replaced with new and qualified people,’’ Oguejiofor said.
The school administrator, however, said the graduates who would be turned into teachers through the NYSC scheme must be those who willingly want to join the profession.
“If the government can heed this suggestion, it will go a long way in bringing about a change in the education system.
“Government has to make the NYSC programme a period of training interested graduates who want to go into teaching.
“After their initial training in the camp, they should be posted to schools for their primary assignment and they should be encouraged with better allowances,” she said.”
she also laid more emphasis on the importance of keeping a close eye on schools and their activities.

“There should also be constant inspection of schools to monitor the performance of the teachers, while the school curriculum should focus on producing students and leaders who have character, competence and chemistry,’’ Oguejiofor said.(NAN)
