MPs want prompt funding for TVET
Locked outThe legislator noted that lack of resources had locked out many deserving students from humble backgrounds, majority who graduate from day secondary schools. Speaking to parents and students at Tindiret Technical Training Institute in his constituency at the weekend, Melly also urged the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to hire more teachers and deploy them to institutions facing deficits. “More than 18,000 new teachers should be employed to address staff shortage in secondary schools. The Government has good policy programmes to advance education at primary, secondary and technical institutions but a shortage of teachers is still a setback,” noted Melly. He said implementation of free education and 100 per cent transition from primary to secondary were successful, with most classrooms in secondary schools having more than 100 students.
