Public Service turning qualified teachers away

Public Service turning qualified teachers away

In response to the article titled 'Teachers in limbo' published today. The title being Teachers in limbo. I would like to inform the editor and the rest of the nation that qualified teachers are not being offered open posts but instead they are being given closed posts meaning they are only employed on termly basis.

With just a few days to go before schools open many open teaching posts have not been filled not because there are no qualified teachers. But because the Public Service is turning away the recently graduated teachers, some are being put on waiting lists and some are being told that there are no teaching posts.

In provinces like Midlands, Matebeleland, and Mashonaland west there are huge shortages of Science and Mathematics teachers but they are turning the qualified teachers away.

In Mashonaland East province recently graduated teachers are being told to pay between $350 - $500 for them to be employed permanently.

Can you please get to the bottom of this, the public deserves to know that when schools open their children won't have the services of qualified teachers not because the country doesn't have any but because they where turned away in every province and district country wide.

Those who were not turned away were given temporary teaching posts. For a country that prides itself in it's education system there is something definitely wrong.

Last year the government reported a huge shortage of maths and science teachers, so why are they being turned away, is it because the teachers where trained and recruited over night.

Thank you, will be looking forward to the publication of your findings. The public service should explain it's stand on this whole situation.
