I guess this shows the commitment of the nation to human resource development, children's education. I think it also means that those who cry the loudest get what they want ... the public servants in big towns and cities. The rural teachers probably are totally out of link from their offices in towns, they don't get a chance to express their needs more effectively. And the churches, I guess, due to their teachings and commitment to person development are very considerate not to take a more forceful approach of abandoning classroom to let the purse holders know of their plight.

Should the churches relinquish their social roles of education and health and concentrate on their pastoral and spiritual functions? Should we look at other ways of providing education to remote areas than to run schools stocked with classrooms and teachers whom we must look after and provide subsistence?

I read recently that the Minister for Education is on a mission to build classrooms to ensure children at at a walking distance from the school. We need to think also about teachers for these schools and how to sustain these schools - making sure teachers are paid on time. Not to pay on time some teachers while others are getting paid regularly is unfair. But to not pay at all is complete injustice.
