No IT skill, no promotion, Anambra tells teachers

The Anambra State Government has said that from January 2016, teachers in the state who are not computer literate will no longer enjoy promotion.
The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. Kate Omenugha, said this in a press briefing in her office in Awka on Tuesday.                                                                     
She, however, explained that the state government’s policy on laptop acquisition by all teachers in the state was not mandatory for the teachers.
Since the policy was introduced, most teachers had been complaining that government was forcing them to buy laptops at N90,000 each.
But the commissioner said the implementation of the computer policy for teachers was a national issue, adding that the National Council on Education, at its 58th meeting in February 2012, decided that adequate number of computer laptops should be supplied to teachers in the country with soft loan provided by the government.

I feel this is a good initiative, and if some of the teachers are not opportuned to have a laptop, they could possibly go for computer training in training school..
