Education

Le Congo a un problème sérieur a cause de mauvaise gestion.Au parant les enseignant étaient bien payés par rapport a ceux d'aujourdh'uit car on ne fait que détourné et autres. Sur le barème salarial ils prevoient que l'enseignant de l'Ecole Primaire touche le moi 50.000Fc qui a une valeur de 55$ pour une personne qui a baucoup de charge cet insignifiant et pas de Logement, pas de soins médicaux, pas de transport .... Les enseignents qui sont dans les mauvaises conditions ne donnent pas une enseignement éfficace et certains d'eux demandent l'argent aux élèves pour reussir et monter dans la classe supérieure et sur tout ces dans les écoles publiques. Quand l'élève connait qu'il doit donner l'argent pour reussir et aussi ne font pas l'éffor pour étudier et reussir.Dans baucoup des écoles il n y'a pas de bibliothèque, pas de l'eau et par foi meme de toilettes.

EDUCATION

Congo has a serious problem because of poor management. In times past, teachers were well paid as compared to those nowadays because they only embezzle. On the salary scale, provisions have been made for Primary School teachers to earn 50.000 FRS which is $55. For a person with many responsibilities, this amount is insignificant without housing allowance, no medical care, no transportation. Teachers who are in poor conditions don’t teach effectively and some of them especially those from government schools, ask money from students in order to make them pass to the next class. When a student knows that he has to give money to succeed, he makes no effort to study. In many schools there are no libraries, no water at times no toilets.

les petits salaires

Bonjour kusinza,
Merci pour votre contribution qui demontre que quand le salaire est petit, le salarie ne pas motive pour bien travailler et cela engendre la corruption. C'est vraiment dommage.
Mais ne perdons pas l'espoir
Dans la paix

Motivation

I am sorry to hear of the sad state of education in your country. It is true that people need to be motivated to teach by more than just altruism but a sense of being able to provide for themselves and their families.

Thank you for your contribution to this debate.

:(

it is sad to learn about that. but time will change everything if we keep struggling against corruption and work for the future of our kids! whatever is the financial standing, children's education is those teachers' responsibility, no matter what reasonable excuses they may have. I believe that there are some teachers in your country who are committed to the ideals of enlightenment and who try to make a difference in students' lives by teaching them the best way they can! let us all do the best of what we can in our lives!
