The Kano State Government has declared a state of emergency in education as part of a renewed effort to overhaul the sector.

The state’s Commissioner for Education, Umar Haruna Doguwa, stated this during a training session for newly-appointed education secretaries held in Dutse, Jigawa State on Monday.

Doguwa urged the education secretaries to uphold the state’s education standards diligently, emphasising their pivotal role as government representatives in their respective areas.

He specifically cautioned against the arbitrary transfer of teachers to the state capital for personal reasons.

The commissioner identified inadequate teachers and learning materials as the primary challenges confronting education in Kano.

However, he assured that the government is fully committed to restructuring the sector to tackle these issues effectively.

Yusuf Kabir, the Executive Chairman of the Kano State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), emphasised the urgency of addressing issues like low school enrollment, teacher and student absenteeism, and insufficient community involvement and support.

Kabir also acknowledged the shortage of qualified teachers and the lack of commitment among non-teaching staff at the Local Education Authority (LEA) headquarters.
