Kaduna Government sacks 4,500 newly recruited teachers for “Incompetence”



Kaduna Government sacks 4,500 newly recruited teachers for "Incompetence" | BellaNaija

The Kaduna State Government has sacked 4,500 of the teachers newly recruited after the sack of 22,000, BBC reports.

The 22,000 teachers had been sacked after failing a primary 4-level competency test.

15,897 new teachers have so far been recruited to replace them, Lawal Danjuma, an aide to the state’s commissioner of education told BBC, but 4,500 of those have been let go.

They were fired for incompetence, he said, not being able to write acceptance letters.

There is no place for teachers who don’t know how to write simple acceptance letters in our primary schools, sacking them is best for children’s education.

    I agree with the decision to let them go as they dont have anything to offer the kids but they should have been tested before they were recruited.

    We are back at this again? When they are ready to progress on this matter, they should start by addressing the root cause. The original batch of teachers and the new ones that have been sacked were products of the same failed educational system that the government is now taking action against.

    Yes, there might be some nepotism involved in some getting their positions, but the sheer mass points to a larger problem.
