The leadership of the Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission (TSC) has warned that it would not condone indiscipline, laziness and other forms of unwholesome behaviour amongst teachers and students of public secondary schools across the State.
A monitoring team raised by the Commission led by its Chairman, Hon. Babatunde Abegunde gave this indication while monitoring schools in the three Senatorial Districts of the State.
The Chairman, who expressed dissatisfaction with the performances of some teachers, urged them to go about their duties conscientiously to assist their students to perform well.
At Eleyo High School, African Church Comprehensive High School, Amoye Grammar School, all in Ikere-Ekiti and AUD Grammar School Ado-Ekiti, Abegunde pleaded with the teachers to guide and monitor their students closely to enable them improve on their current performances.
The inspection, according to the Chairman was not conducted to witch-hunt any teacher but to further encourage them and put them on their toes for better performance also solicited that the teachers cooperate with their Principals to improve the standard of education in the State.
The general complaints of the Principals of most schools visited by the team include lack of adequate accommodation, toilet facilities, water supply, perimeter fencing and unrestrained encroachment on school lands by some members of the public.
The Chairman, who appreciated the efforts of the management staff of St. Louis Girls Grammar School, Ikere-Ekiti, Ayede Grammar School, Ayede-Ekiti, Ado Grammar School, Ado-Ekiti and Corpus Christi College, Ilawe-Ekiti where the Principals were noted to have been diligently discharging their duties, vilified the teachers who are not doing enough with a charge to them to buckle up.
The Principals commended the State Government for the various landmark achievements within eight months of coming into the saddle, especially the prompt payment of salaries, provision of housing and car Loans, payment of core subjects and rural allowances with a charge to government to continue to prioritize their welfare.
