Govt warns absent teachers

Online Desk |  1 year ago | top

Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education Permanent Secretary, Tumisang Thabela says teachers who fail to report for duty will not be paid, and will face further disciplinary action, in accordance with Government's 'no work , no pay' policy.

Mrs Thabela directed heads of offices to take urgent disciplinary action against anyone who obstructed the opening of schools, and deprived learners of their constitutional right. 

Provincial Education Directors have been directed to provide a daily update on progress in handling the disciplinary cases in their provinces. 

This comes as some teachers did not report for duty when schools opened on Monday and others reported at their work stations but declined to do any work.
