Kupe-Muanenguba: Schools Expected to Re-open Unperturbed

The education community is ready to continue with normal classes in the second term as was the case in the first term despite the teachers’ strike action.

Members of the elite, education community, administrative and traditional authorities of the Kupe-Muanenguba Division of the South West Region are determined to ensure that the second term of the 2016/2017 academic year kicks off effectively, today, January 9, 2017 and moves on hitch-free as was the case with the first term despite the crippling strike action called by the teachers’ trade unions in the North West and South West Regions.
The commitment was reaffirmed during a preparatory meeting at the Bangem Women’s Empowerment Centre on January 7, 2017. All speakers during the meeting acknowledged problems in the English sub system of education but trusted in the government-initiated dialogue and the determination of President Paul Biya to have the problems solved through frank dialogue.
Forestry and Wildlife Minister, Ngole Philip Ngwese, accompanied by the Minister Delegate in the Ministry of Finance in charge of the Budget, Elung Paul Che, all sons of the Division enlightened the education stakeholders on measures already  taken by government to address the grievances raised by Anglophone teachers’ trade unions. He said many people  have been released as requested by the leaders, CAP, Probatoire and Baccalaureat suspended in Anglophone technical schools  and Anglophone technical education aligned to the English sub system, transfer of Francophone teachers from schools of the English sub-system scheduled to begin as from the second term of the current school year, additional subsidy  of FCFA 2 billion to the amount initially earmarked  in the 2017 budget  for lay private  and confessional schools, among others.
The Kupe-Muanenguba Senior Divisional Officer, Hadison Quetong assured the education stakeholders of all practical measures taken to ensure perfect security. Members of the education community such as Dr/Mrs Ngome Felicia, Divisional Delegate for Basic Education, some head teachers of primary schools and principals of secondary schools talked of their readiness for effective take off of the second term.
