Government is exploring ways and means of improving the lot of private secondary school teachers in the country. Meeting at the Teachers’ Resource Centre in downtown
Yaounde on December 9, 2015, members of the National Commission on Private Education presented activity reports for the 2014/2015 academic year. They also discussed plans by the Ministry of Secondary Education, MINESEC, to sign work contracts with some schools in order to raise teacher morale and improve student performance.
Opening the sitting, the Minister of Secondary Education, Ngalle Bibehe Jean Ernest Masséna, said the plan includes the offer of teaching material, training, follow-up of school activities and duty exonerations on certain teaching material. He however noted that secondary education was still fraught with weaknesses such as the continuous existence of illegal schools and the sub-contracting of the processing of certificate examination papers by some officials.
Other points of concern are the non-registration of teachers with the National Social Insurance Fund and the forwarding of incomplete school authorisation files by Education Secretaries and Regional Delegates. Responding to the proposed plan, Rev. Fomuso Buma Henry, the National Secretary for Protestant Education, said it could end up being more expensive for government than paying subventions to schools. He wondered how government would be able to construct classrooms for private schools and recruit and pay teachers when they are unable to do so in their own schools.
