The Anambra government says it will sack teachers who are unable to recite the state’s shared values.
Kate Omenugha, the commissioner for education, said this on Tuesday while speaking at a training programme organised for teachers in the state.
Omenugha expressed disappointment over the inability of some of the teachers at the various training centres to recite the values.
“If you can’t recite the state values, you will be sacked,” she told them.
The commissioner asked the teachers to constantly recite the shared values for it to become a part of them.
Omenugha said knowing the values is compulsory for the teachers because “they are part of the governor’s vision in the education sector.
“The earlier you key into (Willie) Obiano’s (the state governor) vision in education sector, the better for you.”
The commissioner also talked about the “development strides” of the present administration regarding technical education in Anambra.
She said the governor inherited 11 technical colleges “of which none was accredited by the NABTEB (but) currently, 20 of them are fully accredited”.
