Moreover, teachers who have distinguished themselves during the school year will also be rewarded.
This announcement is part of those made last Friday by Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe Massena, the Minister of Secondary Education (MINESEC) to the educational community gathered at the Nkolbisson technical high school in Yaounde. It was during the conciliation meeting during which the MINESEC assessed the conduct of examinations and official Concours of the 2016. Now there will be prize winners for official examinations in respect to secondary education. For the MINESEC, it’s a question of finding a way to improve the success rate of students in the said official examinations and Consours. It also concerns teachers.
The Emergence newspaper of August 29, 2016 that relays that information relates the perspective of a teacher met that day.
“This innovation can only be commendable. Me as a teacher it will allow me to place special emphasis on the work I already do. “
It must be said that Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe Massenaa said that the educational community can not be satisfied of the results of the 2016 examinations session based on the fact that the success rate is declining. “He will act as soon as possible to obtain an upward curve.“
However, the MINESEC clearly states that for the curve to be upward, it is necessary that measures are respected. One who has been yet again at the center of some small debate was one that revises the number of students per classroom. These are 60 students in form ones and first year, 80 students in the other classes. The Minister also warned anyone who does not respect the new measures governing the life of schools.
