A public project monitoring team, Tracka, visited Government Day Secondary School located at the Federal Housing Estate in Bajabure, Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State, where pupils and their instructors improvised chairs with mats.
Stunningly, the primary and secondary sections of the school operate in a shift, Tracka added. While the former attend classes in the afternoon, the latter do in the morning. This was further blamed on inadequate classrooms and other teaching facilities in the school.
“We visited the school and discovered the deplorable state of learning, where both primary and secondary schools share the same building for learning. The primary school has their classes in the morning while the secondary school does the afternoon session,” Tracka tweeted.
In addition, the school situated in the capital city of Adamawa does not have a teacher for primary three pupils.
The project monitoring team, however, urged the state government to come to the aid of the school by building additional classrooms and providing basic needs for teaching and learning to enhance learning and teaching.
Wilbina Jackson, the Adamawa State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development did not respond to calls. At press time, she had not responded to an enquiry sent to her.
