Retired Teachers Get Support

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has backed the hiring of retired teachers.

Mr Bainimarama said there would be a big increase of teachers in schools this year.

Retired teachers would be hired on the basis of their experiences “since we do not want anyone to be left behind,” he said. He said the Opposition had criticised the move.

“A lot of Opposition talk is nonsense. They do not realise that at one point in time there was no job for these teachers once they reach their retirement age,” he said.

He said all those teachers who were brought back to teach would be monitored on their performance and would be paid accordingly to what they delivered.

“If they work hard then there will be a raise in their pay accordingly but the whole idea is to give our youngsters a bright education,” he said.

Mr Bainimarama has warned parents to take their responsibility seriously because of Government’s various assistance.

“Schools have started and it is very important that parents know their responsibility very well. They need to attend to all their needs. It has been made easy in terms of free bus fare, free education, and free textbooks. There should not be any complaint.”
