Bayelsa Teachers Abandon Teaching to NYSC Members

source: Vanguard

Troubled by reported absence of teachers from schools in Bayelsa State, especially in the riverine communities, Bayelsa State Government has called on Bayelsans to report all such erring tutors.

Most teachers posted to schools in the hinterland of Bayelsa State hardly stay at their stations, leaving National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, members posted to such schools to do the bulk of the academic work.

Consequently, the government has provided two hot lines for Bayelsans to report all such teachers found wanting in the discharge of their duties.

The measure, according to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, was part of efforts aimed at ensuring the implementation and proper delivery of the government’s restoration programme in the educational sector.

He said: “Bayelsans in all parts of the state have been urged to report classroom teachers, who absent themselves from duty for appropriate disciplinary action henceforth.”
