Why is Students Performance in External Examination Poor? Because they are poorly taught. In 2006/2007 & 2007/2008, only 23.6% and 27.0% respectively had 5 Credits and above. Why are Students poorly taught? Teachers are ill equipped. Inspection Reports/Screening of Teachers.
Why are teachers ill equipped? Because they lack teaching skills.. More than 50% of the teachers do not have teaching qualification. Why do they lack teaching skills? They are not trained teachers. Performance in State and National conducted examinations show that students perform in subjects taught by professional teachers.
Why are they not trained teachers? Because very few qualified candidates choose teaching as a profession. Many who enter the teaching profession do so as a last resort
Provide textbooks at subsidised rates and other instructional materials; Retrain teachers in pedagogy and in subject areas; Introduce compulsory 1hr preparatory period for students after school; Sensitize parents on the need to take interest in their children/wards studies/homework; Introduce all embracing report card for students; Comprehensive and regular inspection and supervision of schools and teaching/learning process; Public announcement (at school assembly hall) of termly results of students; and Principals/teachers authorized to enforce discipline.
