    Government comes up with resolutions to improve education in Anglophone Cameroon as response to strike!


    Yesterday, 13th of February, a press conference was held in Yaoundé by the Ad Hoc committee created by the Prime Minister on behalf of the government to look into the problems that were raised by the anglophone Teachers Trade Unions who launched a strike in November 2016.

    The head of the AdHoc committee; Paul Ghogomu said those who are still observing the strike now even after five out of six of the Trade Unions had called it off are practicing civil disobedience with an agenda which is different from the teachers' strike.

    As per the 19 recommendations made at the last AdHoc Committee meeting which held in Bamenda with the Teachers Trade Union Leaders(some who are now in detention awaiting trial) on the 13th of January 2017; these are the resolutions that were revealed in the press conference:

    -In order to reduce the deficit of Anglophone Engineers; the Government is considering the creation of a Polytechnic school in either Bamenda or Buea.

    -2970 PTA(Parents Teachers Association) teachers will be recruited into service by the end of 2017

    -The 2016/2017 academic year will be altered to allow for students in the North West and South West regions to catch up with classes

    -Besides the Teachers Training school(ENSET) in Douala, a new Teachers Training school(ENSET) will be created for Francophone Cameroonians to reduce the presence of Francophones in ENSET Bamenda and Kumba.
