On Saturday, on the occasion of the “national movement” for the current academic year, the Ministry of Education released the results of the transfer of teachers.
According to the results announced on the official website of the ministry, more than 4,150 male and female teachers benefited from this annual movement.
A remarkable decrease compared to last year. The 2011 academic year witnessed a transfer of 6,288 beneficiaries, while that of 2010 witnessed a transfer of 4,316 beneficiaries.
Sticking to the promise that the results of the annual movements would be released around the middle of June, Minister of Education, Mohamed El Ouafa, stressed that the administrative staff in charge of the transfer department must work day in and day out to guarantee the release of the results at the appointed time.
On the other hand, thousands of teachers have evinced their disgruntlement towards the results and that their names weren’t included among the beneficiaries, particularly at a time when the degree of participation in the transfer has decreased by 8 percent this year.
Most disappointing of all is that whereas only 288 high school teachers were transferred to their preferred areas, 2,400 primary school teachers and 1,460 middle school teachers benefited from the transfer.
The Ministry of Education ascribed this disproportion to the fact that this year’s intake of new ENS (training center) graduates was forgone.
With many much-anticipated intakes of graduates next year, there are higher chances the annual movement will witness a progress, for the training centers are now under way to receive around 7,000 trainees.
