By Tom Kathoa
Schools Boards of Governors and Managements in Bougainville have been warned not to interfere with the work and responsibilities of teachers.
The warning was issued by the Chairman of the Provincial Education Board, Tony Tsora.
Mr. Tsora said the roles and responsibilities of teachers are separate from that of the boards of governors and boards of managements.
He said this misunderstanding and usurping of powers by some school authorities has often resulted in schools not operating and performing the way they should.
The chairman has called for a more united approach to the running of their respective schools for the betterment of the children and Bougainville as a whole.
Mr. Tsora said he is planning to conduct more awareness workshops on the role and responsibilities of teachers, boards of governors and managements.
He further said that school boards come directly under the Provincial Education Board.
