GOVERNMENT URGED TO MOTIVATE TEACHERS IN RURAL AREAS

BY NAMUKALE KAPENDE
National Action for Quality Education in Zambia (NAQEZ) has implored government to introduce a deliberate policy that will motivate teachers to teach in remote parts of the country.
In an interview with Komboni radio news, organisation Executive Director Aaron Chansa notes that pupils in rural areas are performing poorly because teachers are not motivated to live in rural areas.
Mr. Chansa charged that teachers in rural areas are operating under very difficult conditions.
He cited lack of social amenities, poor infrastructure of classrooms and teachers accommodation as some of the contributing factors that has hampered the delivery of quality education in rural areas.
Mr. Chansa has proposed that government should start promoting teachers who have served for more than three years in remote areas and sent them to a better place, stating that this will motivate others to work in rural area.
