Mkushi Kabengeshi Ward Councillor Stanely Hamiyanda in has praised government for deploying teachers in the area.
Speaking in an interview with the Daily Nation, Mr. Hamiyanda said he was pleased with the Ministry of General Education for deploying seven teachers in the ward.
Mr.Hamiyanda said the move has cheered residents in areas where the teachers had been deployed especially at Luanga Primary School where one teacher was running the learning institution single handedly.
“I am really commending government for the gesture which has offset teachers under staffing in schools in the ward. The move will also enhance pupils’ ability to learn effectively.
“Luangwa Primary School which had a critical shortage of teachers received five while Chikabile and Mankanda received one each. I can ably say, I am now comfortable with staffing in schools.” Mr.Hamiyanda said.
Mr Hamiyanda said that the development will also improve on teacher -pupil ratio in classrooms as compared to the recent past.
Mr. Hamiyanda has since appealed to teachers deployed in the ward to perform to the expectation of both the community and the ministry with a view to attain education for all.
