(2) Teacher preparation needs to be improved or overhauled particularly at the primary level so as to help children learn effectively; and teachers should be given more opportunities for additional in-service training or incentives ti improve their teaching performance.
(3) An incentive systems needs to be put in place that rewards performance as measured by what teacher know and able to do in classroom and one that demands a higher level of performance in the classroom as a result of having attained higher qualifications.
