Ministry should intervene at Goko High
EDITOR — We, the parents of Goko High School, are being short-changed by both the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and the school itself. Our plight is that there is a geography teacher (name withheld) who appears at school for less than two months per term. Most of her time is spend attending some so-called AIDS workshops facilitated by a local NGO.
We wonder how and when she teaches our children and why the school authorities, the ministry and Public Service Commission are mum about this issue which has been recurring for the past ten years. The parents used to urge the school head (name withheld) to make teachers alternate for these so called workshops so that our kids acquire value for money. Few months ago we heard she was beaten up by certain women over infidelity allegations. The incident occurred in front of our children. We take this as utter emotional abuse of our children. Why can’t she go and work for these ‘NGOs? School head are you being paid by these men to zip your mouth. Please the responsible ministries take action before we, the parents, decide otherwise.
