quality input from teachers’ unions and we are of the view that these unions must formally be included in development of education policy especially concerning areas of teachers’ recruitment, in suggesting disciplinary measures applicable to teachers guilty of breaches of professional conduct, and in safeguarding the rights of teachers in terms of ensuring better remuneration and working conditions for them.
She also told the gathering that NCHD has more than 16,000 volunteer teachers in both the government and community schools. This year we hope to have 17,000 literacy centres throughout the country.
