Solomon Islands national teachers association (SINTA) president Samson Faisi yesterday said the message now is teachers have to struggle to get a better pay and conditions.
“The ongoing injustice faced by teachers of this country must be stopped now before it gets worst in the future,” Mr Faisi said.
He said the current fight is to provide
a better world for teachers in the future.
Mr Faisi said if the practise of turning deaf ears to teachers’ issues continues, nobody will want to become a teacher in the future.
“Teaching is a profession that is vital to any society, however taking up the career would be seen as the last option to future generation if the current situation faced by teachers is not solved.”
The president stressed that the quality
education that the Government want to achieve can only be achieved once there
are more qualified teachers in the field.
“Thus our fight today must not be seen as today’s issue.
“We are fighting for future teachers, to pave way for them to enjoy their career once they are in the field.”
Mr Faisi called on the Government to recognise the sweat of the hardworking teachers and address whatever issues they face in a right way.
