Speaking on Xtra, Opposition leader Bernard Grech addressed the ongoing tribulations being felt by the country’s educators, saying that they are leaving their vocation due to intense pressures.
‘Teachers are leaving in dozens, if not hundreds. Remember that being a teacher – as it is for nurses, doctors and social workers – is a vocation to serve’.
‘For a teacher, it is the end of the world to leave the class room and go work in a different industry or sector’, said Grech. ‘Because they are being crushed under pressure by increasing curricula and other challenges they are facing.’
