Nigeria: UNICEF Holds Five-Day Workshop on Education Data in Umuahia
Source: allAfrica.com
Source Date: Wednesday, June 04, 2014
Country: Nigeria
Created: Jun 04, 2014

Already, the intervention programme by UNICEF has been fully completed in seven of the 10 A-Field offices of UNICEF based in Enugu, with revelations that would enable the authorities concerned to know where to increase funding and where to undertake advocacy programmes to stem the tide both on the short and long term basis.
Speaking on the occasion, Agatha Nzeribe, Education Specialist, UNICEF, Enugu, described the intervention as solid foundation-laying exercise that will eventually put an end to ad hoc preparations in the education sector.
According to her, the training would form part of the concerted efforts to properly situate teachers to handle pupils, where the ratio of teacher-pupil relationship is higher than the approved number, adding also that areas of need would be x-rayed through the data collation for the optimum use of the authorities.
"When we conduct school mapping reports with the data collected by the states, at a glance any planner will say these are where efforts should be geared to, these are where boys and girls drop outs are prevalent, these are where the teachers issues are.
"We're equipping education officers that manage information to go out and collect data for information management system to analyse the issues to enable the authorities to speak with finality. Most politicians that are vilified daily mean well, but the capacity to provide information is weak. This is what the training is all about."
