The Teachers’ Unions – the National Teachers’ Organization of South Africa (Naptosa) and the South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) – in the Free State have expressed concern about the shortage of teachers at an early stage.

The division of Matla Primary School in Bloemfontein drew attention to the shortage of primary school teachers in the province.

Earlier this year, the school was split in two due to the influx of students.

Director of the National Professional Teachers Organization of South Africa (Naptosa) Free State Ramahera Dikoti says: “The recent discussion of the shortage of teachers at the founding stage has always been a concern for Naptosa Free State. the number of teachers, but we need very good teachers who can transfer knowledge in the right way … “

“We are concerned that schools have used any available teacher at this stage, which affects student learning. We believe that teachers stand in front of the classroom not to keep students busy, but to teach them and teach them perfectly, ”says Dikoti.

However, the Free State Department of Education has denied allegations of a shortage of primary school teachers in the province.
