Overcoming Exam Malpractices

Nigerian teachers are surprised, and pleased, to hear they are supposed to take care of their students, during Grace & Light education workshops.

Many teachers say they didn’t realise they are supposed to safeguard and nurture students as parents do; or that students do badly when they see their teachers are corrupt.

“They are really happy to hear our call to take care of their students, and say sorry for their behaviours doing the opposite,” says international coordinator Tassie Ghata.

The teachers shared stories of asking students for money in exchange for exam answers and sexual favours, as well as children questioning their sexuality.

“Exam malpractices came up again and again,” said Tassie.

On 26 October 120 people attended the ERCC national education department seminar in Akwanga, Nasarawa State to hear Tassie explain how to be Christian teachers.

Then on 14 November Tassie spoke to 365 teachers and further education students at the International College of Education in Langtang, Plateau State.

And on 1 December she spoke with 1,564 women from 14 churches in RCC Ciyel Jos during their COCIN Women’s Fellowship annual meeting.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for:

  • Christian teachers to understand their roles modelling love, respect, honour and Christian behaviours for their students
  • Teachers encouraging students to honestly answer exam questions.
