According to Premium Times, the Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN, on Tuesday, said NYSC authorities should stop deployment of corps members, who lack basic knowledge of teaching, to teach in schools. Steve Nwokocha, the Director of Operations of the Council, said the deployment of unqualified teachers, like the youth corps members, contributed to the mass failure being witnessed in the country in recent years.
“The issue of having mass failure is a process. Part of the people contributing to the process are these corpers. It is an abuse to our profession. Government should stop posting youth corpers to teach in schools. We at the council are against posting of NYSC without teaching background to schools.“
He argued that only graduates of education should be posted to schools, saying the council was ready to rid the country of quack and fake teachers.
There is no use posting Corps members to schools when they have no interest in teaching.
