Be Computer Literate Now Or You Will Not Be Promoted, Anambra State Tells Teachers

0
The Anambra State government through its Commissioner for
Education, Prof. Kate Omenugha has said it is mandatory for all teachers in
the state to be computer literate, or such teacher should forget about promotion.
The commissioner said though a lot of the teachers have been frowning against
this development that would bring improvement in the education sector, but any teacher
that fails to acquire the knowledge before January 2016 should forget about
being promoted. Such teachers will remain where they are, she explained to journalists
yesterday in her office.Continue…

“There has been misinformation and misconception, with bad
blood being generated on the policy of one-teacher-one-computer. When the NCE
took the decision in 2012, it was binding on all states and because of the
forward-looking nature of the present administration, we decided to implement
it.
“When we took over, the state government evolved a blueprint
on the implementation of the one-teacher-one-laptop policy and by January 2016,
every teacher in the state must be computer literate, otherwise there will be
no promotion for non-computer literate teachers.
“Similarly, any new teacher to be employed in the state must
be computer literate. What we promised Anambra State people is to give our
children an education that is competitive and no pupil can rise above his
teacher that is not computer literate, a situation we do not want.
“We made it clear that teachers should key in into the
programme voluntarily. It is not mandatory, contrary to what many people are
insinuating. We know that making changes often come with resistance, but this
is one change that is important for the future of education in our state,” she
said.
