l'educqtion

normalement au Congo,l'éducation des enfants n'est pas meilleur et cela est due à des raisons suivantes: -D'abord le non payement de la salaire mérite aux enseignants.Avec ceci l'enseignant ne prend pas courage de bien s’intéresser aux élèves car il sait que même s'il se force la salaire sera toujours médiocre. -Ensuite il y a la pauvreté au niveau des familles causée par la guerre dans quelques niveaux du pays(dans les villages). -Enfin la corruption.il ai,e la corruption car il ne gagne rien au niveau de la capitale.Merci.

Normally in the Congo, childhood education is not the best and that is due to the following reasons: -First, failing to pay the deserved salary to teachers. With this the teacher does not get up the courage to really address the needs of the students because he/she knows that even if he tries his salary will always be mediocre. -Then the is the poverty at the family level caused by war in several areas of the country (in villages). -Finally corruption. There is corruption because no one wins anything at the capital level. Thank you.

L'éducation en dehors de la capitale

Il doit être très frustrant de voir un manque de bonne éducation. Il est important de fournir l'éducation précoce. Comment pensez-vous que l'éducation pourrait améliorer dans des endroits en dehors de la capitale?

Dear Delvie,

Thank you for opening my eyes more to the situation in the Congo by sharing your testimony. In doing this, you've taken a step forward in helping those teachers, simply by beginning to spread awareness.

Delvie, if you have the time, I hope you'll write in more detail about this. I would like to understand more about the teachers not getting paid, who is supposed to pay them and who keep the money that should go to them.

I'd also like to know more about no one winning at the capital level, and what that means to those who are victimized by it.

As a Vision Mentor for World Pulse, I've had the privilege of meeting Neema, one of your countrywomen, and she, too, is opening the eyes of Americans as she tells the story of the gross injustices which continue in DRC.

Your story of teachers not getting paid for their extremely hard, valuable work is of interest to all those here who teach, including my husband and I who are both former teachers. We understand how crucial teaching is and how deeply teachers deserve to be paid and must be paid.

So, Delvie, if the spirit moves you, sharing more information and details on the World Pulse site will be an excellent next step.

With Respect,

Interfaith Reverend Sarah

Teachers Everywhere are Heros

The sad reality is that teachers everywhere are usually underpaid in most cases than not. In a place like the Congo, where in addition to poverty there are also other factors like corruption, only serves to hamper the growth of quality education. Being poorly paid does not give any incentive to these teachers to be the best that they can be on behalf of their students. Most of all, great teachers become that way simply because they love their craft and not for the fact that they are the highest paid employees. It is a sad commentary on society anywhere that we expect these men and women in the classrooms to serve as role models as well as mold the minds of our future leaders and presidents but, we undervalue their worth as professionals who do a great job often in very difficult circumstances. Long live teachers all over the globe. Keep up the good work no matter what!

Hi Delvie

Reading about education in your country is like reading about my country Bolivia! We are so far away, but still we share the same problems.

For this reason, I want to encourage you to keep writing about this reality, especially taking one small chunk of information and developing it into a story, so that we can know more about it.

It is awesome to hear your voice and I look forward to reading more from you.

Love,

Jackie
