The issues of quality
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The importance of quality in teacher education is well recognized in Nigeria as in all education communities all over the world. Its National Policy on Education affirms that no education system can rise above the quality of its teachers (Nigeria, 1977; revised 1981, 2004). In fact nothing is as important to learning as the quality of the learner’s teacher.
