….says transition to the next administration in the state does not call for a break in the school system.
The Special Assistant to the Governor on Education Monitoring, Akparawa Udeme Udofia has warned teachers in the state against staying back from school or attending school without entering the classrooms to teach the students, saying they would be penalized if found wanting.
Udofia said the warning was necessitated by the attitude of teachers he found loitering about during his routine school monitoring in the state, instead of engaging the students positively.
He, therefore, appealed to education stakeholders in the state to throw in their weight and ensure the high premium Governor Udom Emmanuel places on the Education of children in its public and private schools is not an effort in futility.
He admonished Principals and Heads of Schools in the state to be alive to their responsibilities to raise a generation of diligent, upright, and brilliant students who would take the state to an enviable height educationally rather than encourage insubordination from teachers
While addressing the teachers of Nsit People’s Grammer School, Udofia cautioned that without being compassionate in the discharge of their primary assignment they can not be proud of the profession as teachers, he frowned at their mode of dressing, saying it demotes the teaching profession.
He also appeals to teachers and students not to see this transition period as an automatic break from the state education policy scheduled for the academic year.
