Teachers To Earn Higher Salaries Than Other Workers

Teachers may soon earn higher salaries than other workers in the country. Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu dropped the hint while inaugurating the Governing Councils of Federal Colleges of Education in Abuja on Thursday.

He said the teaching profession had ceased to be an “all-comers affairs”. 

Represented by the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Gozie Anwukah, he said government had understudied the Malaysian educational system and decided to take a critical look at teaching and teacher education.

He, however, sounded a note of warning that teachers across all levels must register with the Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) before the end of this year or risk being sent out of the system.

The minister noted that Malaysia in the quest for greatness had reorganised its educational sector for effective development of human resources to take it to the present position.

He said: “What they did was to bring down the whole system and resuscitated the education sector. Their planning was geared towards the development of human resources. In Malaysia, many of those who scored the highest in their equivalent of our JAMB compete to be teachers.

If you are a teacher in Malaysia, you are ranked higher than any other worker in the country. This is why you would find people with PhDs teaching in primary schools. We have made that recommendation and we are going to implement it in Nigeria,” he said.

  7. A good step. Where will they get the money to achieve it?

    In order to cut the cost of governance and spread the "loot" serving as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria should be on a volunteer basis with stipends. However, the pot-bellied corridors of the Senate reeking with sycophants will strongly oppose this.

    A senator's cumulative monthly pay is more than the amount allocated to some LGAs in Nigeria.
