Many teachers in public secondary schools in Delta, have rejected employment by Christian missions, who have taken over management of 40 schools in the state.
The teachers, numbering more than 15,000, including those whose schools were handed over to the missions by the state government, opted to remain in government
Prof. Muoboghare, Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education in the state, confirmed this to the newsmen, in an interview in Asaba.
The return of the 40 schools to their former mission owners was announced by the state government in September, 2011 while a formal handover of the schools was done in October by Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan.
