Primary and Secondary Education Minister Dr Lazarus Dokora this morning pulled yet another shocker after he called a press conference to announce a move that is likely to be met with the highest degree of resistance by school teachers. Before dust around the issue of the recently introduced national pledge has even settled, the Government has announced that with effect from July
2016 all Primary and Secondary school teachers shall be wearing a ‘national uniform’ so as to create a distinct identity.
“Just like nursing, teaching is a crucial fraternity that deserves notice and respect. Every teacher is ought to be recognised and identified in society, hence the introduction of the national uniform for our learned teachers” said Dr Dokora. According to the Ministry’s Permanant Secretary the uniform will bear our national colors and will be in the same design for both primary and secondary school teachers.
