62 EDUCATION STATISTICAL ABSTRACT 2011 Table 5.14 indicates that there are 37,641 teachers in secondary education, of which the Central region takes the biggest share (32.5%). Data was also collected on teachers’ qualification to further ascertain the quality and relevance of their training/qualifications to the education sector. Table 5.16 gives details of teachers’ qualifications by gender. Table 5.16: Teachers in Secondary Schools by Qualification Qualification Male Female Total Male % Female % DPE (Diploma in Primary Education) 271 451 722 38% 62% Grade II Teacher 19 49 68 28% 72% Grade III Teacher 17 31 48 35% 65% Grade IV Teacher 38 86 124 31% 69% Grade V Teacher including DSNE, DSE,DTE 1,405 1,730 3,135 45% 55% Graduate Teacher 1,402 1,937 3,339 42% 58% Licensed Teacher 76 315 391 19% 81% Other Training 90 294 384 23% 77% Total 3,318 4,893 8,211 40 60 Analysis on teacher qualification in secondary schools shows that majority of teachers are Graduates and these account for 41.0% of the total number of teachers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
