PHOTOS: Copies of the primary four exam failed by 21,780 teachers in Kaduna
Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai on Wednesday shared copies of the primary four exam questions failed by 21,780 out of 33,000 teachers in the state.
Mr. El-Rufai posted the questions on Twitter with the caption: “Excerpts of the Primary Four 'competency test' questions massively failed by Kaduna State Teachers. Now, You be the judge.
“If a teacher fails to score at least 75% in this primary 4 competency test, is he or she qualified to teach? Answer sincerely.”
The state is now shopping for 25,000 new teachers as one of the plans to restore dignity and quality to education.
The Governor unveiled the planned recruitment when he received a World Bank’s delegation in Kaduna on Monday.
“We tested our 33,000 primary school teachers, we gave them primary four examination and required they must get at least 75 per cent but I am sad to announce that 66 per cent of them failed to get the requirements.
“The hiring of teachers in the past was politicized and we intend to change that by bringing in young and qualified primary school teachers to restore the dignity of education in the state,” the governor said.
