Why bring in expat teachers?


IN last Thursday’s The National, Education minister Nick Kuman says he and his delegates will travel to India to recruit science and maths teachers.
As a young, committed and dedicated science teacher for upper secondary schools, it is a big slap in the face to work so hard and so much and get paid so little.
Mr Minister, if you cannot pay public servants on time — the tuition-free fees components have not been paid for the last quarter — how would you pay the expatriate teachers?
Provide incentives and proper entitlements to your hard-working teachers and your goals for Vision 2050 will be achieved.
