TRCN asks NYSC to stop posting non-education graduates to schools

Registrar and Chief Executive, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Prof. Segun Ajiboye, yesterday said the TRCN had written to National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Director-General to stop posting graduates without education degrees to teach in schools.

Ajiboye, who spoke with newsmen in Ibadan, lamented that most of those posted to teach in the mandatory one-year scheme do not have qualification to teach, noting that education system gets bastardised when unqualified persons without requisite professional skills are deployed to teach.

He stressed that majority of those teaching in private nursery and primary schools nationwide do not have the qualification to teach.
