“You have denied us Junior Rank Promotions for more than a year but expect us to be happy?Keep your wishes.”

“It’s very sad that teachers have to be in classrooms on this important day meant to celebrate them.”

“Most of us teachers cry each day watching our payslip.. Bad salary structure for teachers therefore most of them depend on loans for a living. Who told you GES that teachers need your wishes for this meaningless day??”

“Until you begin to treat your employees well as done in other sectors, your name will remained bad forever”

“We really don’t need these wishes. I don’t know who is celebrating us. Can’t this “One Day” be made a holiday for teachers? As teachers, we are in the classroom teaching, so whom are you celebrating?”

“This day should have been used to mark our quintessential role to the nation’s development, with bonuses and motivations to energize us to give off our best.”
