UDEME UDOFIA IDENTIFIES KEY DRIVERS OF EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

….says education remains the searchlight of every developed society

The Uyo Senatorial District Director in the Ministry of Education under the State Secondary Education Board (SSEB), Akparawa Udeme Udofia has identified discipline, compassion, innovation, and commitment as the key drivers of educational development.

Udofia stated this at Ibiono Local Education Committee while addressing the heads of schools under the State Secondary Education Board in Ibiono Ibom.

The Senatorial Director who called for a meeting with the Zonal Director and the principals of schools under the Ibiono LEC drew the attention of the principals to their primary responsibilities of training and bringing the students up academically, socially, and morally.

Appealing to them to take effective control of their schools while remaining in strong and effective coordination with their Zonal Director as well as give due respect to the office of the Zonal Director and the SSEB. That way, they will work as a team, making the policy workable and goals enhanced.

He urged the principals to invest quality time to maintain discipline and enforce corrections else the system would fall on their hands like a pack of cards, and the negative effects of this will robe off on the overall educational development of the state via the education policy.

According to him, ”the vision of every principal should be that of producing academic high-flyers, creating a positive impact in the lives of the students, and this can only be archived through daily efficacious supervision of the teachers and students activities. It behooves the principals to collate subject allocations in such a way that conflicting ones are reconciled systematically for the good of the students and teachers.”

Speaking further, the Director harped on the degrading value some principals placed on themselves by not conducting and comporting themselves well enough in exercising their authority and encouraged them to be firm and focused. He maintained that when orders are flaunted the system gets distorted.


Responding, the zonal director Mrs Bessie Daniel Effiong thanked Akparawa Udofia for coming to them with such an encompassing lecture, saying it was an eye-opener for the the principals.
She further asserted it would serve as a booster of the good working relationship between the zonal director’s office and the principals as well as ease the friction that would have strained effective school administration.
