Taraba State Governor, Dr Agbu Kefas, has disclosed plans by his administration to make master’s degree the minimum academic qualification for anyone wishing to teach in the state’s secondary schools.
For primary school, the governor said the minimum academic qualification will be a university first degree.
Kefas said the current era when the National Certificate of Education is the minimum academic qualification for primary school teachers will soon be over.
He added that the study of History as a subject would be reintroduced in the basic education curriculum in schools in the state.
The governor stated these during a dinner with journalists in Jalingo on Sunday.
