Two organised groups in the education sector on Monday in Lagos called for a review of the old 6-3-3-4 system of education as a step towards removing the dichotomy among tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
The group, the Nigeria Union of Teachers and All Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools, said that government should also review teachers’ salary scale.
They said that a review of the 6-3-3-4 curriculum should be tailored to encourage patronage of colleges of education by admission seeking youths.
The Chairman of NUT Lagos Wing, Mr Adesegun Raheem, said that a special salary scale for teachers would attract people to want to go into the teaching profession.
Consequently, he said, more students would be willing to go into colleges of education.
