On yesterday’s programme, we received a huge response from teachers around the world who felt that they were not paid their worth.
Dr. Charles in Nigeria told us how teaching did not provide enough money to put food on the table for his family. Zikomo in Malawi also said he was struggling on a teacher’s salary. Class sizes were too high and resources were poor. But Mel on the blog responded that she was fed up with hearing teachers go about their pay, especially when they get such long holidays.
In Australia teachers have gone on strike to protest against their pay rise offer. School teachers in Washington and Los Angeles
are being warned of staff lay offs to cut spending. Teachers here are also tired with bad behaviour.
Are you a teacher and do you feel you are undervalued? Do we take our teachers for granted or are they treated well enough?
