The Senate President, David Mark, has lamented the deplorable treatment teachers in Nigeria face and blamed the falling standard of education on this neglect. Mark said unless teachers were encouraged, the nation should expect higher institutions to continue churning out half-baked students from our institutions of higher learning.

In a short remark after a bill seeking to formally establish the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) College of Education scaled the second reading on th floor of the senate recently.

He said, “Allof us here passed through a teacher at one stage or the other in our lives. But we tend to relegate teachers to the background without improving their elfare. We’ll need to do a lot more for the teachers. We need to encourage the people who teach our young boys and girls.

If we don’t encourage them, we will be producing the type of Nigerians that won’t be able to impact the society because if we don’t give the young ones right foundation, they may never catch up. At the moment, I don’t think that we are satisfied with the type of graduates that are coming out of our universities. This is because they never had a good foundation.”

The bill on the FCT College of Education which was sponsored by the senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba and first read in the chamber last November sought to provide legal backing, as well as regulatory framework for the college located in Zuba. However, the institution has been ib existence since 1996.
