Today, the commissioner of the teachers’ union is expected to give an order in Parliament for a curious debate on teachers’ promotions.
For the second time in less than a week, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will question why thousands of teachers have remained in their jobs for many years.
TSC has failed to develop 15,522 teachers and hire 5,000 trainers despite money being released for the purpose, and last week the National Assembly Education Committee said it would pay TSC extra.
Members of the National Assembly committee, chaired by MP Tinderet Julius Melly, said that the inability of teachers to move to a new job group will affect their pension.
“This is a very serious matter, we are not going to sweep it under the carpet, what are you going to do with the people who have retired? *Who is going to pay this teacher’s pension, please retire soon and don’t see these teachers as victims,” he said Melly.
1. Recruitment process of 30,000 teachers and their planning throughout the country.
2. Engagement of teacher interns in accordance with the 2009 teacher interns policy and guidelines, noting that the Board is not recruiting 5,000 interns teachers by July 2022 despite the budget provision.
3. Delay in teacher promotion and its impact on teachers and students
4. Delocalization of teachers.
