TRCN Scribe Calls for Better Pay for Teachers
The Registrar, Chief Executive of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Professor Josiah Ajiboye, has advocated for a higher standard living for teachers, to meet up with the international standards.
While featuring on The Stage, a personality interview programme on Premier FM 93.5, Ibadan, Professor Ajiboye said outside Nigeria, especially in countries like Finland and Germany, teachers are more highly paid than other professions as they are the best brains the country could boast of.
Professor Ajiboye noted that, if maximum attention was given to the needs of teachers, it would yield a positive impact on both the teachers and the students.
The Registrar Chief Executive of TRCN, however, said that only professional teachers should be strictly taken into the teaching sector for a better teaching standard.
