Management of teacher education in Nigeria, Issues and problems and remedies

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The importance of teachers and the roles they play in the educative process are central to basic education, particularly in third world countries, there may be close substitutes for teacher-roles in the form of teaching machines with programmed instruction (Balogun 1988) but in third world countries such as Nigeria, teachers undoubtedly remain the managers of knowledge. Therefore, teacher education in Nigeria is, and should be, the foundation of quality and relevance of education at all levels.
