In commemoration of the 2023 World Teacher’s Day, teachers in Kwara State have said that their welfare needs to be improved for the younger generation to be attracted to the teaching profession.
Lamenting the situation, a teacher, Abiodun Olasedidun, described the poor attention given to teachers’ welfare as a major reason why the profession no longer attracts the younger generation.
Esther Ale suggested that the workload of teachers should be reduced while their incentives get increased, so as to attract younger generations.
On her part, Grace Adelowo advised aspiring teachers to focus more on impacting the lives of their students rather than the meager salary being paid.
