2023 IWUDE IJESA: Rotimi Tayo Blames Teachers for Unimpressive Academic Performance of Students

At the concept of inter-school debating, the focus is on the school and not the students representing the school. Thus, when the performance of the student is unimpressive, it is a reflection of the teacher. (Vice versa). Consequently, teachers are to be blamed for the prevailing unimpressive academic performance of students.
