Heads Warned Against Demanding Teacher Motivation Money From Parents
Head teachers and principals of public schools nationally have been warned of dire consequences should they demand motivation fee from parents.
State Department for Early Learning and Basic Education Principal Secretary (PS) Dr. Julius Jwan has warned that the government will take action on public schools sending learners home over their inability to raise money for teacher motivation fees.
The PS maintained that the government will now take action against field officers who do not report those cases.
“We will hold field officers responsible because this is happening right in their presence. It is unacceptable that we keep getting a lot of complaints every time. They should give us comprehensive reports to engage TSC to handle the cases,” he said.
Dr Jwan warned teachers punishing students for not performing well in their academics, speaking against a popular viral case where teachers punished a student for failing to attain 400 marks.
Two teachers have already been arrested in connection with the case and are yet to be arraigned in court to face assault charges.
