Parents cant raise US$2 teacher incentives

teacherWEDZA-Children enrolled at some rural schools have been sent home for failing to pay US$2 teachers incentives.

Parents with affected children said the pupils had not been attending classes since early last month. Hopeless children were spending time herding cattle during school hours.

Minister of education David Coltart said it was not government policy to turn away children from school for not paying fees. Rural schools continue to defy government directives, holding children at ransom.

A senior teacher at the school who declined to be identified said: Though the school bears with struggling parents, teaching staff need incentives to carry out their work diligently. What we are charging as teachers was agreed upon by parents and the teaching staff.
