Govt Warns Teachers Against Shutting Down Schools

Govt Warns Teachers Against Shutting Down Schools

The Government has warned unnamed people who reportedly barred pupils from accessing schools this Monday that they will be dealt with in line with relevant procedures.

Schools opened this Monday for the 2022 first term, almost a month after the initial date (10 January), due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Secretary for the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Tumisang Thabela, on Monday said the Government was pleased with the huge turnout of both teachers and pupils when classes resumed today.

Reports indicate that in Harare and Bulawayo, learners were turned away as teachers embarked on a strike, citing “incapacitation”.

In a statement, Thabela said the Government is seized with addressing the issue of teachers’ remuneration and an announcement will be made once specific details have been finalised by the Ministry of Finance. Read the statement:

Government is pleased to note that schools have opened, that the majority of teachers reported for duty, and that the majority of schoolchildren were able to attend classes.

In instances where students and pupils were unable to attend, Government awaits definitive information on the reasons, so as to respond appropriately.

Regrettably, Government has noted that, in a few instances, learners were barred from accessing schools.

Government has been in discussion with its workers in the framework of the National Joint Negotiating Council, and, in its continuing sensitivity to the needs of its workers, is committed to the shared aspiration for the continuous improvement of conditions of service in the entire civil service.

In that regard, Government is seized with the positive adjustment of conditions for its workers within the current budgetary framework.

Those adjustments will be announced soon when specific details have been finalized by Treasury.

Government urges its workers to report faithfully at their workstations to ensure uninterrupted delivery of services to the public. Access to education is the inalienable right of every child.

Deliberate interference with that right is a grave affront to the child, as well as to parents and guardians, apart from being an act of misconduct that cannot be tolerated.

Consequently, appropriate measures will be taken in line with relevant procedures.

I'm a teacher by profession,I got paid $19000RTGS last month,my two kids require $12000RTGS fees each that is $24000. To tell the truth,I spent the whole day today home schooling my kids coz I cannot afford to pay fees for my kids or travel to my work station and yet Madam Thabela issues out threats. Yes parents paid fees,yes learners deserve to be taught,but how about my own kids?? How do I honestly discharge my duties diligently knowing that my own children are seated at home??I am sorry to say this but mina angijiki. Nxa uphela lowomsebenzi awuphele mama kuyafana lokhu mxxm.

This is the same woman who told teachers to borrow money to go back to school and the whole cabinet laughed.Negotiations have been going on for about 4 years and have yielded nothing .Trs salary fell from $US 540 to $35 nw its around 90- 100 us ,this happening in the midst of negotiations.Boarding fees u have approved those around 200 000 vs 20 000 salary kkkkk

People you can't force in life. Teachers and medical experts. Teachers may go and sit down or under teach. You will not force them. We are witnessing this.
