The World Bank mission in connection with the Nigerian Partnership for Education project has shortlisted Katsina in its newly introduced project.
The project titled: Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) is aimed at improving access and quality of basic education with an emphasis on girl’s participation.
In a courtesy visit to governor Aminu Bello Masari, the task team leader, Dr Olatunde Adekola, told the governor that the project had become effective since January this year.
He says it’s in recognition of the significant progress recorded by the state in increasing the rate of girl child enrolment to schools across the state.
The governor since his administration, the state has a deficit of over 16,000 classrooms across the foundation education in Katsina state.
This affects junior secondary school level down to primary one.
And in terms of teacher-student ratio, there had been the need of over 13,000 teachers to bridge the gap.
The present state administration since inception has been planning to change gear in the education sector.
He says under the project, the higher the enrolment, the more money/revenue to be generated by the state and vice versa.
Gov. Masari while announcing the state government plan to reducing the teacher-student ratio noted that the sale of forms has commenced in the state.
It is intended to employ additional 5000 primary teachers to be posted across the state.
This gathering believes that education will remain the only gateway for socio-economic and political development of northwestern states of the country.
