I read a disturbing piece in the online guardian newspapers a few days ago and teachers (currently on strike) were proposing to picket private schools to make sure their strike action is felt more by the general populace,
I find this worrisome because i know if my kids were to grow up in nija they most likely will not be going to public schools(despite their parents being products of that system up to university level).
On the other hand though, i feel the pains of the teachers because of the hardships they go through on the job and i know they are quite aware most of the kids of those in government aren't in public schools(for those in nigeria that is) and they'll only feel the strike if their wards are made to stay at home too.
So here's the dilemma,while im aware public schools are just private businesses,the children of decision makers should not escape the consequence of their parents' decisions.
and on a side note, i saw an article in the punch newspaper during the week(check backpage online punch wed/thur) saying 'honorables' in abuja get about 114,000 naira daily for lunch! This kind of news will definitely enrage the teachers more,most of whom don't earn that kind of money in 3 months.
please what do you all think about these?
