The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh says, one sure means of keeping youths out of criminality is the provision of functional education that would guarantee one skill for every child in school.
Addressing a gathering of Education Secretaries of the twenty-one Local Education Authorities in Anambra State, Prof. Chuma-Udeh stated that a youth with visible means of livelihood would not make the bush a base for perpetration of evil. This realization according to Commissioner Chuma-Udeh, informed the resolve of the Prof. Chukwuma Soludo’s administration to emphasize skill acquisition in the school curriculum.
The Commissioner who solicited for the support of the Education Secretaries towards the realization of the desired goals, hinted that plans are on the way for teachers to converge in Anambra State for an international conference.
The gathering was in continuation of Prof. Chuma-Udeh’s familiarization meetings with policy implementing bodies of the Anambra State education sector.
