I Saw My Secondary School Teacher After 15 Years And Am Thinking About This. by Rich4god(m): 9:39am On Oct 14, 2023
I was at my work place when one of my secondary school teacher came in for some inquiries.

I finish secondary school about 15 years back and this teacher was already there before I entered JSS 1 and from my findings, he is still working there.

Now to the main issue... He came for some financial advice and so he provided me with his details. Currently his salary is about 125,000 and I heard he's now the vice principal academics of the school.

I was really heartbroken. How can someone sacrifice more than 20 years of his life building up leaders of tomorrow only to still be earning less than 200k. This is not good at all.

With this type of poor financial payment to teachers, it's obvious we can't be having serious minded individuals to take up the teaching profession.

From what everyone knows, teachers don't have a clear path to career growth. The highest one can get is to be a principal and the package that comes with that position will definitely be less than 300k.

Now what am thinking is....

Let govt officially create a career path for teachers/lecturers. Even though some of them are already doing it. But let it be official now.

Let govt and teachers council and NUC make it mandatory that lecturers should only be employed from secondary school teachers and secondary school teachers should only be employed from primary and nursery school teachers.

This is how it will work.

Let's say a graduate(BSc, B.Ed, NCE) starts his or her teaching career as a primary or nursery school teacher. From there the teacher aquires more qualification and progress to secondary. Then from secondary, the teacher probably gets a master's or more degree, then during recruitment of lecturer whether private or public, the candidates that will apply are those who are secondary school teachers with the necessary qualifications.

If the university is looking for professionals from industries, let those set of lecturer be visiting lecturers.

I was thinking you were thinking of upgrading him financially only for you to start talking about government. You ended up not saying anything tangible about helping your secondary school teacher.

With this in place, teachers can actually have a career and have proper growth education wise and financially.

This will help mitigate the issue where teachers will be teaching in primary and secondary for years without any significant changes in their financial life.

Like I said earlier, some teachers through their own personal efforts moved from secondary school teacher to university lecturer. But it will be better if govt creates a career path for them. This will encourage better hands to enter the teaching profession as the path will be promising for them.

The pay is fair enough for an old school teacher.
It's up to him to advance his career.
Note that he still earns from other gigs like home lesson teacher and others

What you are saying has bad long-term implications as so many field would be left empty

Truth is if you want teachers to earn more there is only two solutions

1) higher taxes... Most school all over the world are funded by property tax

2) high school fees this is clear to understand


But for me the best model is what Peter obi did in Anambra... That's the best model for public health and education sector... It's just fantastic

But I would like to add a bit of what ameachi did in rivers state first then apply Obi principles... Once you add this two... Trust me the results would be wonderful

Our old students association have been in constant touch with the school helping out in the best way we can, but I never for once imagined that the salary of a teacher who have stayed that long will still be at that range.

Most won't upgrade because they know they aren't going far as a teacher. The once who upgrade are doing so because they are leaving the teaching profession.

Teachers rewards dey for heaven
Re: I Saw My Secondary School Teacher After 15 Years And Am Thinking About This. by CodeTemplar: 10:30am On Oct 14, 2023
Salary is suppose to be reward for labour, in a situation where the final output of the labour is 1.5-2.5 decades away, it is always harder to get money out of those getting the service. The parents of those children don't get anything in return in the short term from the fees they pay so it is largely a one-way traffic until the child works and earns. Even that period between training and employment is being widened by lack of opportunities and dysfunctional system.
It is well.

I met my government class teacher somewhere in ikeja few months ago.. about 18yrs since I left secondary school.. he was trekking with a bell.. man Neva change. He was a gospel preacher . I called him and he couldn't recognise me.. until I made him remember everything way back. He almost cried.. Thanks to hubby. He's now working as a manager in a factory with good pay. I always smile at life and everything it offers
