Teachers are the heart of any education system and it’s a pity some of them seem to be oblivious to this.
They fail to dedicate themselves to their work and blame the department of education and learners for poor performance.
In the past, poor results in black communities were caused by the unequal allocation of state resources.
Today’s public schools get enough money and resources from the state. In schools where the results keep deteriorating it’s obvious the available resources are under-utilised.
The computer labs are fully functional in many schools yet there are many teachers who aren’t computer literate.
Those teachers deprive learners who are eager to acquire computer skills and they ultimately deprive the nation of the required skills for development.
Teachers need to take personal
development and curriculum delivery issues seriously.
They must keep on empowering themselves in order to empower learners.
Good teachers honour their calling by producing smart learners who pass with distinctions.
Teaching is the foundation of all professions. To build a strong house you need a solid foundation.
Teachers must take their profession seriously. SELAELO MOLOKOMME, KOEKOEK VILLAGE
