Promotion of teachers with higher qualifications, teacher appraisal, delocalization and career progression are among the issues that were to form part of the meeting.

Dashed hopes

Postponement of the meeting comes with dimmed hopes. Early this week the union wittingly embarked on an exercise to collect data of teachers with higher qualifications with an aim of cementing their argument on promotion.

Postponing the meeting means that teachers will have to wait longer for their grievances to be ironed out.
