Chairman of the Assessment committee, Professor Dennis Agbonlahor, in a statement said: “pursuant to the desire by the Government and people of the State to urgently halt the unacceptable state of delay in its education sector, the seven man Committee has commenced its assignment by adopting a special approach that would be beneficial to all concerned.
According to him “the Committee started by holding interactive sessions with all relevant Government Stakeholders, Chief Inspector of Education (CIE) Education Secretaries, Principals and Heads of randomly selected Secondary and Primary Schools and paying on the spot assessment visits to schools in order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the education system.
“In line with International Best Practices which support the need for continuous professional development and continuous assessment for performance evaluation, the Committee will ensure a total systematic assessment by observing the teacher in their classrooms and interacting with the teachers on the subject they teach”.
The statement concluded that the theoretical interactive session would terminate the holistic assessment exercise teacher’s subject areas that would hold simultaneously across the three Senatorial districts on March 22.
