I READ an article under the heading “New retirement age hits graduates” (The Star, July 11), and am concerned over why there are no jobs for graduates from teachers’ education institutes.
Has there been an over supply of teachers due to the extension of the retirement age, or a lack of classrooms/schools that has led to this situation?
In many government schools, there can be as many as 35 to 40 students in a classroom and this number is rather high.
If attempts are made to build more schools or increase the number of classrooms in existing schools, then the graduates will not be out of a job.
With a smaller number of students in class, it will make it more conducive for teachers to teach and for their charges to learn. If this system is implemented effectively, there is no doubt that we will have better and more focused students.
Did you find this article insightful?
