The Kaduna State Government announced that it would revive guidance and counseling units in public Secondary Schools in the state on Friday.
Hajiya Imma Ahmad, Director-General, Kaduna State School Quality Assurance Authority, made this known at the close of a five-day training for secondary school teachers in Kaduna.
Ahmad said that the counseling manual had been developed as part of efforts to ensure that every school has a functional guidance and counseling unit.
“Our teachers these days just teach and leave the classroom with no form of counseling to improve the morals of the students or guide their career choices.
“We want to change this so that our students will not only be educated but will be instilled with good morals and properly guided on how to make the best of life,” she said.
She pointed out that effective guidance and counseling remained key in addressing the decline in students’ performance in schools, including school dropout and social vices, among others.
On teacher training, the D-G said that the authority would make adequate provision in the 2021 budget for teacher training to improve the quality of teaching in public school.
Also, she said that the authority would ensure global best practices in the education sector in the state.
