Oyo to promote teachers based on pupils’ results
THe Oyo State Government has said public school teachers’ promotion will bed based on their pupils’ performances in external examinations.
The Chairman of the Oyo State Post-primary Schools Teaching Service Commission, Pastor Akinade Alamu, said this at an interactive session with school managers at the AnsarudDeen High School, Saki, on wednesday.
Alamu said the move was aimed at measuring the teachers’ performances.
He said, ‘’Our government is a listening one, we are here today to have some feedback. I can assure you that era of unpaid salaries has gone forever as this (the Seyi Makinde) administration will continue to pay regular salaries.
“In the last promotion where over 800 teachers got promoted, there were no reports everybody was moved at the same time. Though we believe our teachers are noble and hard working, we may have some bad eggs who are lazy and might have sailed through without being qualified and the hard-working ones will be feeling cheated.
“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 certified to be good and efficient need not wait for general promotion; they will be promoted and honoured as and when due.”
The Saki Zonal Head, Aderonke Oladoyinbo, lauded the Seyi Makinde government’s achievements in the education sector.
She said, “This government is playing a great role to ameliorate the plight of teachers and pupils through regular payment of salaries, disbursement of car loans to teachers, promotion and free distribution of textbooks.”
