“We do not have chalks to write on the blackboards” — Cross rivers teachers lament

Teachers of cross rivers states lament as they were not given chalks to write in school for the past five years

Mr Castro Ezama, Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Education, however, refuted the claim, saying it was not true in any way.

One of the teachers of the state said teachers were angry at the situation and decided to join in the on-going industrial action in the state.The industrial action by labour in the state began on Tuesday, Oct. 12 over 14 demands yet to be met by government

He said

“come to some of our schools, we do not have chalks to write on the blackboards. As basic as chalks are, we don’t have.It is either we, the teachers, provide chalks or we compel students to buy them so that we can continue to teach,’’

Another teacher in a government primary school in a local community in Akamkpa Local Government Area said teachers were tired of complaining over chalks in the last five years.

Janet Etim, a student of Government Secondary School in Calabar South, said pupils and students were tired of staying at home because of workers’ strike.

“Our school principal says if we want to learn, we should support with contributions of money or chalks for our class teachers.”
