Official praises teachers in remote areas


Teachers in remote areas become a jack-of-all-trades in the communities they are serving in, says Bulolo school inspector Mufuanuc Zurete.
Zurete said teachers in most remote parts of the country were a shining light in their communities. He said they became carpenters, nurses, peace officers, accountants and pastors, among others.
“When there is a conflict, they become mediators, and treat the sick and wounded in rural areas,” Zurete said. “Teachers sacrifice a lot to serve in most remote parts of the country to make nobody become somebody.
“They are the engine room for students’ learning.
“They make learning happen.
“Without a teacher, people in remote places around the country will remain uncivilised.”
Zurete said teachers were committed to seeing transformation in rural societies and must be respected.
