“For now, not less than 100 teachers have been released to other districts to teach, which has created a huge teacher deficit in the municipality with its negative consequences on teaching and learning … I must admit that teachers continue to besiege the offices of the GES to demand to be re-posted to schools they feel safe and secure in,” Ayeriga is quoted.
He added that “there is no way they (exodus of teachers) can be prevented since they require a safer and conducive working environment to work …. some teachers perceived to belong to any of the factions cannot go to certain schools for fear of being attacked.”
