Rose Ezewu, commissioner for secondary education, says the Delta government is committed to improving the quality of education in public schools.
Ms. Ezewu spoke at the opening of a meeting of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and State Examinations Committee on Wednesday in Asaba.
She said the government led by Ifeanyi Okowa will continue to take measures to improve the teaching and learning environment for the benefit of students.
The commissioner said the state government is open to ideas to make the education sector more productive.
Ms. Ezewu said the meeting was to review the conduct of the latest West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the state.
“We need to assess the performance of state candidates. We also need to recommend ways to conduct more credible reviews in the future,” she said.
She said the ministry had inaugurated an examination ethics and discipline committee to ensure mental health during examinations.
“Their mandate is to review reported cases of involvement in professional misconduct against any principal, supervisor and teacher,” she said.
Ms. Ezewu congratulated the WAEC for passing the May/June 2022 exam and releasing the results quickly.
Sunday Egomagwuna, Director of Examination and Standard, described the meeting as a good opportunity to right past wrongs.
“It is important to make meaningful contributions as we move forward. We have a duty to society to conduct credible reviews,” Egomagwuna said.
