Govt. Should Tackle Teachers’ Problems

Thursday October 12, 2017

Kabul (BNA) Teacher, this builder of society, burns but illuminates society. But unfortunately in Afghan society, this strata has been facing countless problems. They ask the Afghan government that doesn’t celebrate the teacher’s day alone but tackle their problems practically.
In their interviews with The Kabul Times reporter, talking on their potential problems, a number of teachers explained them as the following:
The head of MoE Publication and Public Relations Department Muhammad Kabir Haqmal talking on teachers’ day and teachers’ living conditions said, the MoE celebrate teachers’ day every year in glorious ceremonies due to certain reasons. For example Allah has told our Great Prophet (PBUH) that I send you to learn human being good humor.
Answering a question that in 1394 the president in his speech on teacher’s day had said that a piece of land will be distributed to all teachers, Haqmal said, we have about 295000 teachers throughout Afghanistan and for 15000 teachers plots of land have been distributed.
Touching the imaginary schools, Haqmal said there are no such schools in Afghanistan and no one managed to prove it.
“One behalf of the MoE once again I congratulate this suspicious day to our teachers and thanked than that have sincerely been educations our children”, he concluded.
Marina a teacher of Noor Jehan private high school talking on teachers’ problems, said no doubt education is the backbone of each society but unfortunately teachers are slightly focused in our country. In private schools, relations play more role than regulation. In case of a slight violation, teachers are fired.
She added, another problem in private schools is late payments of teachers. We expect the MoE to exert control on these private schools to pay their teachers’ salaries on due time regularly.
The headmaster of Ayesha Durani Shukria Razayee said, 5th of Oct, the teachers day is every year celebrated in Afghanistan in crowded ceremonies and teachers are appreciated. Instead of those letters of appreciation, the government should focus the teachers’ salaries and accommodation and improve their living conditions, offer them peace of mind to make more attempts in educating of country’s offsprings.
Maria Ahmadi a teacher of Ayesha Durani high school said, I am pleased to have the opportunity to greet 5th of October teachers’ day to the world particularly the Afghan teachers through the dignified The Kabul Times daily, the first English language newspaper in Afghanistan.
Replying a question on celebration of teachers’ day by the Ministry of Education and gifting teachers, she went on to say, on this occasion, certain gifts have been prepared and distributed to prominent teachers including letters of appreciations.
