Media personality and fashion entrepreneur, Laura Ikeji-Kanu, has called for the mental evaluation of teachers in Nigeria.
This comes following several reports about teachers brutalizing their pupils in the name of instilling discipline. Some days ago, a three-year-old girl was reportedly brutalized by her teacher in a Lagos school because she couldn’t recite the English alphabet, and most recently, a 19-month-old baby was mercilessly beaten by his teacher, leading to the death of the child.
In an apparent reaction to the recent happenings, Laura insisted that at this point, a mental evaluation of teachers is necessary.
In her words,
“Teachers in Nigeria need mental evaluation. We need to know that the ppl we leave our kids with are normal human beings. Mental evaluation for all teachers in naija. Lets take out the bad ones. If you’re unhappy n frustrated, being a teacher isn’t the best profession for u”.
