SOME teachers fail to practice basic teaching principles in the classrooms, an education officer says.
Western Highlands provincial education reform coordinator Benny Tep said this during the Grade 8 graduation at Kolge Namba Primary School in Hagen Central, Western Highlands.
Tep said some teachers failed to do simple things such as putting up charts to enhance learning.
‘’Most of the time, I visit schools and see that classroom walls are devoid of pictures, formulae and examples of subjects being taught,” he said.
“This is a concern and teachers must improve on this.”
Tep said some teachers showed a total lack of discipline in the classroom. “I see many teachers wearing caps, chewing betel nuts, puffing cigarettes and even drinking alcohol in front of students,” he said.
“They are influencing the students to imitate what they are doing.”
Executive officer for Hagen district Jim Pena said people would always say negative things about teachers. “But who will thank them for their hard work?” he said. “They ensure children get a quality education.”
