1.1 Background of the Study
The recent claim by the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) that 80% percent of teachers employed in Sokoto state public schools lacked teaching qualification provided a further insight into the profound nature of the crisis commonly confronting our educational sector.
The aim of education is to provide knowledge that will integrate individuals and move them into more meaningful individuals in the society capable of solving their problems. Qualified teachers have been seen as an effective instrument towards achieving this effective teaching. It is pertinent to mention here that ineffective and poor teaching of biology as an important key science subject in the school curriculum has continue to cause some havoc by shattering the hope and aspiration of some students, especially the ambitious ones.
