South Sudan: WBG to hire teachers following the discovery of ghost teachers.
Following the discovery of ghost teachers, the ministry of education in Western Bahr el Ghazal State plans to hire more than 400 school instructors to boost the learning program in 2022.
This was revealed by Egidio Arkangelo Safu in a Radio Tamazuj report seen by NCMP, the state minister of education after his ministry discovered more than 300 ghost instructors during a recent screening procedure when collecting wages.
“One of the concerns we found is a dearth of skilled instructors in the schools,” Minister Safu said.
“Following the latest local screening, we detected over 350 ghost names of instructors, thus we genuinely need to hire over 400 teachers in their replacements.”
“It’s a tremendous amount, and the concern is that we won’t receive all of them,” he continued, “but we expect to have them before the next academic year.”
The instructors have already been recruited, trained, and are ready to begin teaching in the schools.”
According to the minister, they are searching for graduates and those who have finished secondary school.
“We seek at least persons who have finished senior 4 and have passed in English subject since English is our key area,” Safu said.
“We will educate them to be able to speak effectively with youngsters, to instill confidence in them, and to teach them presenting and reading abilities.”
According to Minister Safu, the increase in teachers’ salary last year would boost their performance.
