To underscore the problem, he (Prof. Ezzeldin Mukhtar Abdulrahman) said: “In Kaduna State currently, we have just three qualified Physics teachers in the whole state. When I mean qualified, that means they have a degree in Physics and also Post-graduate Diploma in Education.”
Abdulrahman said to solve the problem, the state government had set up a special science education scheme in the university under which students are given incentives, including a monthly allowance of N5,000 each, to study Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and English.
One large secondary school needs 2-3 physics teachers! Haba! 3 in a whole state?!
Could this be the effects of Boko Haram-like disturbances, causing Southerners to flee the North?
