The Chairman, Rivers State Universal Education Board, Venerable Fyneface Akah has challenged teachers in the basic education subsector particularly in the Early Childhood Care Development Education to be creative in the transmission of knowledge to early learners.
He stated this while declaring open, a Five-day capacity building workshop for Care-givers and Teachers of Early Childhood Care Development Education, ECCDE in Port Harcourt.
Venerable Akah tasked teachers to be tactful and resourceful to make learning easier and in turn promote understanding.
He described Early Childhood Care Development Education as the beginning of formal education and urged teachers to take into consideration the temperament of children to make early child education attractive.
The educationist charged teachers in ECCDE to be disciplined and respect hierarchy of command insisting that disciplinary action awaits any teacher that extorts parents through unauthorized levies.
