Nigerian teachers are still practicing the traditional teaching method and traditional education system is when teachers do not know education best practices and how education business is to be channeled.”

Training teachers means training our future, because teachers will assist us to train our children who are the leaders of tomorrow, so training them means preparing a better future of our children.”
“It is necessary to do up-to-date training for teachers. We need to update them and the best way teachers can be updated is by training them regularly because teaching in class is changing everyday, that is why teachers need to change the way they teach in classrooms to a global world.”

Government should collaborate because this training will help them to know to monitor the actually number of teachers to be trained, and it will also assist to boost the performance of students in their academics.”
