Myanmar urges teachers to focus on in-school teaching

The Myanmar education authorities have reiterated its call on state-owned school teachers to focus on teaching in schools without being engaged in giving tuition classes for students outside the school hours, the local Weekly Eleven News reported Wednesday.

According to a latest warning of the Education Ministry, severe actions will be taken against in-post teachers in state-run basic education schools, who are found to give private tuition class to earn extra income.

The measure will be effective beginning the next academic year 2006-07 (June-May), it said.

In fact, a law to eliminate private tuition classes by in- service school teachers had been issued decades ago but was ignored.

The move by some teachers has weakened the teaching in state schools, dealing unequally with students, the authorities blamed.

However, the authorities clarified that outside intellectuals are allowed to do so after registration.

The education authorities are checking and exposing tuition classes operating in private houses townshipwise, the report said.

The renewed warning came two months after the government decided to raise the civil servants’ salaries to six to 12 times starting last April.

Observers quoted government criticism as saying that with sufficient increase of salaries for civil servants including teachers, it is no need for them to seek extra income but to concentrate on teaching in the schools.

According to statistical reports, the number of basic education schools and universities respectively increased to 40,505 and 156 now, from 33,747 and 32 in 1988, while the number of basic education students and university students has respectively grown to 7.55 million and 900,000 from 5.24 million and 138,000 respectively.

The teacher strength for basic education schools registered 224, 000 now, while that of university 17,000.
