Ndovi: Too late to reverse
Ndovi: We dont have money to pay them if we  employ them 

Deputy leader of the group, Edward Patrick said some of the members graduated two years ago but the government seems not interested to recruit them.

“Some of our members were at Domasi Collge, others at Chancellor College and Polytechnic all of us with degrees,” Patrick.

Ministry of Education spokesperson Manfred Ndovie confirmed there is a group of 400 secondary school teachers who are yet to be employed by the government.

“We are talking to ministry of Finance on the issue because we don’t want to employ them then we fail to pay them,” said Ndovie.

He was optimist the secondary school teachers would soon be employed and beef up staff at public secondary schools.

The quality of education is highly increasing under the good and experiment teachers

How sad is this? I know of a primary school (PT3) teacher who still practises the trade at a conventional Secondary School. I am told there are still some more. Why not retire or transfer them back to primary school so that more qualified, fresh and energetic teachers can take their place.

The quality of education is sighing under a lack of good teachers. But government is not deploying even those qualified teachers that are available. Shame on our “champion of education”!
