During an interview on Monday, Mr Kayiwa Benson said teachers who have developed a habit of absenting themselves from duty without authentic reasons will be facing salary deductions immediately. Some teachers are rarely seen at school and this has caused many of our children to miss lessons.

We can’t just ignore such issues as our children continue to miss lessons, fail exams while others drop out of school because teachers who are meant to teach them are too busy elsewhere and yet they are paid salary every month,’’he said.

Prolonged absence of teachers has always been a serious issue regarding poor performance of pupils in PLE and school dropouts, according to Daily Monitor.

The District has implemented a system of tracking teacher’s daily attendance and every end of month, school inspectors will be able to calculate the number of days missed, deduct that money from their salaries, then come up with final reports which will be submitted in my office,”he added.
