A renowned educationist who goes by the name Hon. Jerry Akporhor on social media has waded into the issue of examination malpractice. According to the blogger cum teacher, when examination malpractice is mentioned, the only people he blames are teachers.
The professional teacher expanded why he feels only teachers are the sole cause of this menace and how they alone can salvage the canker.
In one of his usual posts, the teacher opined;
This is where it starts. Right from the classroom, during exercises and terminal exams. We see this everyday. We as teachers have a great role to play in this. Some of us don’t care. Some of us intentionally ignore or encourage it for various reasons best known to us. Some teachers even go to the extent of teaching students how to cheat in examination without getting caught. Very embarrassing. Instead of using that period to teach them common mistakes that makes students fail exams.
Examination malpractice starts with the teacher and can only end with the teacher. We have more influence on the children than even their parents. They are like robots. They portray to the world exactly what you train them to be. Take it or leave it”.
