Lowest Earning Teachers In Each Job Group Win Big In New Salary Point Mergers
Teachers at lower salary points in each job group will experience a grand boost in their basic salaries since the teachers’ service commission, TSC, decided to merge various pay scales in each job group into a single pay scale. This would give them a huge increase in their basic salary packages.
