It noted that in 2021, about 44,000 (over 15%) teachers left the basic school system with no replacements. While the ongoing efforts to recruit some 16,000 teachers is commendable, it does not even address the deficit halfway.

“The Ministry of Education must ensure the posting of all teachers being recruited to deprived districts where they are needed, devoid of any protocol considerations,” it urged.

“In addition, the many districts with surplus teachers should be decongested, and teachers reposted to empty classrooms in deprived districts where they are most needed.

“Eduwatch’s foremost priority for 2022 is to support the MoE by monitoring teacher postings and teacher deployment in general, in line with the Minister’s vision of One Teacher Per Classroom. Our ‘Every Child Deserves a Teacher’ Campaign will be
launched later this month.”
