The law maker posted on Facebook that he had been in touch with the leadership of the 45 private basic schools in his constituency to find out how they are coping with the exigencies of the times and to express his solidarity.

According to him, unlike their counterparts in the public sector, teaching and non-teaching staff in private schools in the constituency had not received salaries since March, thanks to COVID-19.

He mentioned that in view of this plight he notified the leadership of private schools of a new MP’s initiative to offer a cash compensation package to all 570 teaching and non-teaching staff at the end of this month (May).

“I am particularly delighted that I have also secured assurances that no teacher would be laid off in these difficult times. We are all in this together. We defeat COVID-19 together and we rise from the ashes together #NorthTonguRising”, he added.

I have been in touch with the leadership of the 45 private basic schools in my beloved constituency to find out how they are coping with the exigencies of the times and to express my solidarity.

Sad to hear that unlike their counterparts in the public sector, teaching and non-teaching staff have not received salaries since March, thanks to COVID-19.

In the unfortunate circumstances, I have notified the leadership of private schools of a new MP’s initiative to offer a cash compensation package to all 570 teaching and non-teaching staff at the end of this month (May).

I am particularly delighted that I have also secured assurances that no teacher would be laid off in these difficult times.

We are all in this together. We defeat COVID-19 together and we rise from the ashes together.
