PNG teachers' issues

Teachers’ unethical conduct concerns Commission

TSC chairman, Baran Sori, says the breaching of the professional and personnel code of conduct has brought distrust, shame, disrespect and ridicule to the teaching profession.

“Such behaviour will not be tolerated and teachers caught in such actions shall be suspended without pay and terminated from the Teaching Service,” warns Sori.

“I remind teachers that parents have very high trust on you to take responsibility to care, protect and teach their children in your charge and any action contrary to this trust is bad for the teaching profession.

Commission will tackle teachers’ issues: Sori

This was the promise from TSC chairman Baran Sori in his 2017 back to school message to teachers.

“The Commission does not have money in the 2017 Budget Appropriation to address these issues, but lack of budget support will not prevent the Commission from carrying its legislative roles and responsibilities to ensure members of the Teaching Service continue to provide education to the children of PNG,” stated Sori.
