Kaduna State Govt Welcome Citizens Request To Serve As Volunteer Teachers

Acording the government of Kaduna State, they welcome the offers made by many of their citizens to serve as volunteer teachers. They said they are working out a mechanism for the volunteer teachers' scheme. On the other hand, they denounce the hypocrisy of critics who send their kids to private schools but want bad teachers retained.

Mallam Nadir El-Rufai the Governor of Kaduna State share this on his twitter handle that Many of the people who want us to retain unqualified teachers do not send their own children to public schools. Many teachers in public schools enrol their children in private schools because they lack confidence in the schools where they teach. We denounce the hypocrisy of critics who send their own children to private schools but argue for the retention in public schools of bad teachers. We wish to remind such persons that the children of the poor also have the right to decent education! Towards a decent public education system.

We are gratified that across the country, there is a critical mass of patriotic, fair-minded citizens that supports the right of everyone, including the children of the poor, to decent education. President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed strong support for our reform push, and we wish to thank him profoundly for this. We appreciate the weight of public opinion, expressed in the media through editorial comments, in favour of drastic action to rescue public education.

As a government, we never base the efficacy of any policy on its popularity, but we note that it augurs well for the future of our country that such a strong constituency exists in favour of decent public education.

In particular, we welcome the offers made by many of our citizens to serve as volunteer teachers. Our government is working out the mechanism for the volunteer teachers' scheme. This will be announced very soon.
