Over 20,000  out of 33,000 teachers failed the primary 4 test administered to test their competence by the Kaduna State government.

The state is therefore shopping for new teachers as one of the plans to restore dignity and quality to education.

Governor Nasir el-Rufai unveiled the planned recruitment when he received a World Bank’s delegation in Kaduna on Monday.

The state is searching for about twenty five thousand teachers to replace those who failed the examiation

“We tested our 33,000 primary school teachers, we gave them primary four examination and required they must get at least 75 per cent but I am sad to announce that 66 per cent of them failed to get the requirements.

“The hiring of teachers in the past was politicized and we intend to change that by bringing in young and qualified primary school teachers to restore the dignity of education in the state,” the governor said.
He stressed that teachers would be redeployed across the state to balance the issue of teacher-pupil ratio.

“We have a challenge with the teacher-pupil ratio in the urban schools; there is concentration of teachers that are not needed.

“In some local government areas, it’s a teacher pupil ratio of 1-9 while in some places it’s 1-100,” he said.
