Teachers never learn. Why do they have to endure such high levels of pain just to be an ECZ marker year in year out?
Regardless of how they are mistreated, they still show up the following year.
We have heard that once again ECZ has failed to adequately pay Grade 9 markers. But when the same teachers will be invited to mark G12 papers, they will still go. What kind of skins do our teachers have which is resistant to any manner of torture? It is this kind of destitution that prompts ECZ to keep on lowering standards.
Marking is a national event but the markers must not be subjected to pathetic conditions. Our advise is let teachers shun marking. This will send a big signal to ECZ to amend its ways.
