No plan to displace school scholarship holders, according to the Ministry of Education | New

The Ministry of Education says there are no plans to displace scholars from the school system.

He indicates that the decision to remove the responsibility for paying the bursar’s salary will not affect the other functions they currently have in the schools.

The Ministry of Education plans to introduce a new automated system in which all teachers will be paid by the central government.

Currently, some educators receive their salaries through bursars.

Over the years, some teachers at these institutions have complained about late or missed salary payments.

The Ministry of Education says the new system aims to improve efficiency in preparing teachers’ salaries which are normally paid by schools.

A pilot of the planned removal of salary payment responsibilities from central ministry operations was piloted in two schools earlier this year and is being evaluated in others.
