The organization which was formed to punish teachers, the Teaching Council of PF will start to grill teachers next month. Teaching Council of Zambia will move in to collect money from teachers. The council`s first agenda is to collect money from in-service teachers, private school teachers, students teachers, jobless graduates and other administrators. Teaching Council of Zambia says it does care whether a teacher has money or not, all that the council is interested in is money. The council will not entertain anyone who will request to pay in instalments. The council wants the money in full.
Teaching Council of Zambia also said that anyone who will fail to pay will be flashed out of the teaching service. Jobless graduates will have pay the council if they want to be employed in government.
Next month, all those who will fail to pay will be deregistered, including those in private schools. The council will ensure that teachers in private schools are dealt with and it will not listen to any excuses. They must pay.
