School heads will face being demoted if they don’t perform to expectations within two terms, says the Minister for Education.

Minister Mahendra Reddy confirmed this during an awareness workshop on the reforms that would be implemented by the ministry this year.

“We have roving head teachers and principals reporting directly to us. They will go to schools look at the scenario talk to you (principals and head teachers) all on how you should be doing things. Within three months they will give a report to us,” Mr Reddy said.

“They will examine the performance of the school heads and produce independent reports to us. These reports will be provided to school heads and time will be given for them to improve their performance and after two terms things don’t change they will need to be demoted.”

This is part of reforms that will be undertaken by the ministry to ensure that teachers are providing the right inputs to the students to achieve the outputs it is after – an educated society, a knowledge-based and an ethical-based society.

Meanwhile, Mr Reddy said the ministry would give out 70 per cent (F$15 million) in school grants by Wednesday this week.

He also confirmed that the free milk initiative was expected to begin by the second week of March.
