Ministry of General Education says it has no plans to introduce a dress a code for teachers.

Ministry of General Education Spokesperson Hillary Chipango says the much talked about dress code for teachers it is not an important issue for government.

Mr. Chipango said that since teachers already know and have always been advised to dress decently and appropriately when on duty in accordance to their profession requirement, the teachers dress code was unimportant matter.

He has since advised the general public to focus on more important national development issues that would help develop the education system.

Recently, the Teaching Service Commission suggested a dress code for serving teachers especially female teachers to enhance effective learning.

  1. In the name of all that’s good and holy, how on earth will what a teacher wears enhance effective learning ?? Effective learning comes about by teachers being well prepared, disciplined, punctual and relating well with their pupils.

  2. Seanmac, know that some boys in secondary schools are young men with feelings…! These young men can not concentrate if female teachers dress like modelers…! Generally speaking, the dressing amongst our women today leaves much to be desired.

  3. I remember at boarding even if you are sick with Malaria you still found the stength to attend class and see what tight fitting suit the History tutor Miss Tembo was wearing!!

  4. Our teachers were real models : no drinking from taverns, hair well cropped, neatly pressed attire. We used to stand at attention whenever a teacher was passing through our neighborhood. How can one command respect when he’s always brought home on a wheelbarrow after a kachasu bout?
