The Department of Policy Planning , Research and Statistics under the Education Secretariat is intensifying it's efforts to ensure the teaching and learning process is impactful through its Monitoring Learning Achievement ( MLA) survey conducted . This was revealed by the Director, Dr Mohammed Sani Ladan during the presentation of the report of MLA to FCT Stakeholders meeting held recently.

Representing the Ag. Secretary and Director of Administration and Finance, Education Secretariat, the Director said the importance of learning outcome anywhere in the world cannot be overemphasized noting that the provision of Quality Education in FCT is not the business of Government alone but everyone hence the need for collaboration with Stakeholders for improved and efficient teaching and learning process.

He said the survey carried out by the Department of Policy, Planning Research and Statistics in 63 Schools consisting of 50 randomly selected public Schools and 13 randomly selected private Schools in the Six Area Councils was aimed at assessing the knowledge, skills and attitudes the pupils have acquired. The Director explain that the Tests were conducted in the Areas of Literacy, Numeracy and Life Skills with questionnaires administered to Teachers, Pupils and Parents as marking collation and analysis of test results and questionnaires following due process done.

Dr Ladan who presented the report to all the Stakeholders from all over the FCT Agencies and Boards in the Education Secretariat and Area Councils urged them to contribute meaningfully through their input on how to improve the quality of Education and its service delivery in the FCT . He frowned at the concentration of teachers in the city with little attention to the rural areas especially in the aspect of recruitment, appointment and posting, insisting that the Monitoring Learning Achievement (MLA) report will address this imbalance and make education service spread across all areas for better positive impact.

He said their contributions, suggestions and corrections will further help to have a robust document produced in the FCT Education Sector. Also speaking, Adeyi Abraham, Assistant Director and Head of Division, Monitoring and Evaluation Division of the Department said the research followed due process and was authentically carried out by the various field officers made up of well trained and experienced research officers from the office as well as involvement of heads of schools where the survey were carried out .
