The minister of education announced that graduates would be given a chance to work as teachers to fill vacancies in primary schools.
According to the polls, more than 40,000 schools have only 27,000 teachers as of 2011 and the ratio of student and teacher is very high.
Therefore, graduates will be appointed as teachers for primary schools. “The remote schools need teachers so we’ll send graduates with a five years commitment,” deputy minister of education Ba Shwe said during a parliamentary session on November 5.
“The primary schools in Ayeywawady Region have only one principal and one teacher. On average a primary school has more than a 100 students. Because the education system is fragile, the children leave schools after finishing primary school,” said Myo Naing, head of Thakyar Hinoo village, Daedaye township.
