Kaduna state assures physically challenged persons of qualitative learning
The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Ja’afaru Sani who disclosed this when he visited Demonstration School for Deaf Children (DSDC), Kawo and the Special Education School in the state capital said special schools would receive special attention in terms of basic infrastructure, teaching materials and quality teachers because of their peculiar nature and needs.
Ja’afaru who explained that his visit to assess the state of facilities and see how teaching and learning was taking place assured that necessary support would be given to schools responsible for teaching disabled persons.
He said, “The measure was part of the larger package of equipping public schools to effectively serve the interest of the public. I am particularly impressed with what I saw in DSDC, being a privately owned school in terms of facilities, teaching aids and teaching methods.
In fact, we will send teachers from the state special school to understudy the teaching methodology being applied in DSDC which I found very remarkable.”
Earlier, DSDC Principal, Mrs Victoria Adesina, explained that the school, with about 120 pupils was established in 1987 to address the educational needs of young deaf children at an early age.
Adesina added, “The school is a non profit centre with 14 teachers, out of which nine are deaf, and school fees charged parents cover less than 10 per cent cost of educating each child.
