Kaduna To Introduce Juicy Incentives For Teachers In Rural Areas
Kaduna State Government has said it would introduce juicy incentives for teachers posted to public schools in rural areas of the state.
The state Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology, Ja’afaru Sani made the disclosure at a news conference in Kaduna.
According to him, the measure becomes necessary to retain qualified and professional teachers posted to rural areas.
“Currently, we have more teachers in urban areas than we have in rural areas because the salary package is the same and so whenever teachers are posted to rural schools they redeploy to urban centres.
“Gov Nasir El-Rufa’i has directed the ministry of education and other relevant stakeholders to come up with juicy incentives that will keep quality teachers in rural areas.”
