The Ministry of Basic Education appears to have taken a hard line in dealing with the new additional workload in the classroom.

According to BOSETU, their letter dated May 7, 2022, in which they requested an urgent meeting on May 10, 2022 to discuss the workload issue as the problem was now spiraling out of control, did not materialize but in turn , the ministry justified the new scenario; saying it was developed for 6-day schedules with 40-minute periods and classes of 60 students, whereas now it’s 6-day schedules with 30-minute periods and classes of 30 students.
However, BOSETU says they would like the MoBE to stop the change in teaching loads that is currently being implemented in schools, as failure to do so would amount to a bad faith commitment, hence the union’s position of rally the teaching fraternity to give up extra work. loads in the class.
