The Causes And Prevention Of Secondary School Teachers’ Strike by : 12:23 am On May 15, 2018

The last nation-wide strike by secondary school teachers affected your school adversely. Write a letter to the Minister of Education suggesting at least three ways of preventing future strike actions.

The Causes And Prevention Of Secondary School Teachers’ Strike

I wish to intimate you with the serious consequences of the last nation-wide strike by secondary school teachers in the country. There are many students who did not resume after the strike was called off. The most affected are the female student in the senior classes who were reported to have been pregnant. In fact, our senior prefect was one of these students.

The unfortunate effect of the strike action also affected the male students. The devil found work for some idle hands as there were reports that some secondary school students joined gang of armed robbers while others became gamblers. Academically, most of us have forgotten practically all the things we were taught before the strike commenced. The strike made us duller and lazier. I pray that God will give our teachers strength to make up for the lost time.

Prevention they say is better than cure. It is better to identify the causes of the strike so as to offer ways of preventing one of the causes of the teachers’ strike was the non-payment of their salaries promptly. The Nigeria Union of Teachers (N.U.T) scribe claimed that sometimes their salaries are pad on the fifteenth of the following month. H e also stated that in some states, teachers were owed arrears of up to three months.

In addition, secondary school teachers are being molested by parents and hooligans; just because they discipline erring students. Also, the proscription of the umbrella body of teachers by the ministry was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. The government detained the executive members of the union, dissolved the cabinet and later proscribed it. I wish to suggest some possible ways to curb this typed of situation. First, teachers  just like other civil servants are entitled to reward of labour. They have rendered their service and as such should be paid their salaries. You should use your good offices to constitute a probe panel to look into the reasons for the delay in payment of the teachers’ salaries.

Teaching profession is the oldest profession in the world. There should be a code of conduct governing it. The ministry should come out with categorical statement condemning all acts of molestation and intimidation of teachers. I also wish to suggest that a liaison committee be formed. This committee will have members from both the ministry and the teachers where problems and agitations can be discussed. It is going to be of immense benefit to the nation at large and to the students in particular if there are no more strikes. I wash the ministry looks into these suggestions with a view to finding lasting solution to incessant strikes.
