- Teachers in Oyo will now step up their game for better reward from the state government
- This is as the promotion of teachers has now been tied to the performance of students in examinations
- The state government said that things will no longer be business as usual in the sector
Henceforth, the promotion and honour of teachers in Oyo state will be tied to the performance of students in examinations.
This was revealed on Wednesday, January 15, by the state's commissioner for information, Wasiu Olatunbosun. The decision was made by the Oyo state post-primary schools teaching service commission, The Guardian reports.
Olatunbosun said that things in the state's educational system will not be business as usual because the governor, Seyi Makinde, is bent on rewarding only excellence in service.
He said that the aim is to see impressive results from students in external examinations based on teachers's diligent input.
He stated that Oyo state government cares for its teachers, adding that the era of unpaid salaries is finally over.
Commenting on the new policy, Olatunbosun said: “This is why we are contemplating that at the end of every year, there must be reports on our teachers’ conduct and activities; teachers that are sanctified to be good and efficient need not wait for a general promotion, they will be promoted and honoured as at when due.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that teachers all over Nigeria without qualifications stipulated by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) would be shown the way to the door by the end of December 2019.
