Delta sets tough standards for exam monitors
Paul Osuyi, Asaba

Delta Government said it has opted for the use of senior officers and a few middle level manpower in the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education as examination monitors for Senior School Certificate Examinations in the state.

The measure, according to the government, is to reduce or completely eliminate incidence of malpractice by candidates.

Commissioner in charge of the Ministry, Patrick Ukah, who stated this in Asaba during a meeting with stakeholders in education, said the decision was for the sake of the integrity of the monitors, warning that any of them found wanting would be sanctioned appropriately.

He frowned at situations in the past where a number of monitors carried out the exercise casually, thereby allowing schools and candidates to perpetuate examination malpractice.

Ukah revealed that chief inspectors of education (CIEs) in the 25 local government areas will be swapped to other local government areas during the monitoring period.

He said examination malpractice in schools had taken a new dimension as new trend had been evolved outside the traditional method, but assured the ministry would not be deterred in its efforts to ensure the menace was completely eradicated from the educational system.

The commissioner said all hands must be on deck to achieve this and urged all monitors and appointed agents to be committed and sincere in the discharge of their duties.

Ukah said the state government bore in mind the negative results associated with examination malpractice and had tried to provide the necessary incentives and infrastructural facilities to ensure quality was improved and examination malpractice banished from schools.

TRIBUTE TO TEACHERS

Everyday they wake up by 4:00am.
Thinking of other people’s children.
Off to school to welcome other people’s children.
Off to school to make sure other people’s children are happy.
Off to school to make sure other people’s children are learning.
Off to school to build lives.
Off to school to smile even when they don’t feel like, they must, they do because they know lives depend on that smile.
Off to school to mark the register, checking on every child to be sure all is well.
Off to school to play the role of a nanny.
Yet, the society wants to See them as poor.
We measure them by what they earn, not ready to make it better for them but just wanted to make them feel small.
We try to compare them with professions they made because they choose to be who they are ”TEACHER”.
We care less about making them the STAR that they are.
Now they understand no man can make them feel small without their permission. No one has the right to define them, they define themselves. They are not who the society calls them, they are who they call themselves.
They are
Nation BUILDER.
They are helper of destiny.
They are Star.
They are moulder.
They are full of compassion.
They care.
They teach.
They help.
They discover.
They unfold.
They bring to light.
They are TEACHER.
When next we think about them, see their job beyond what we pay them, look at the NATION they are building.
THEY ARE HAPPY TO BE IN THE HUMBLE PROFESSION.
KUDOS TO YOU ALL THE TEACHERS !.HAPPY TEACHERS DAY.
