Public Response:

While this announcement is likely to be welcomed by a cohort of new graduate teachers, there remains a prevailing sentiment that the conditions of service for teachers need enhancement. The sustainability of recruiting such a substantial number of teachers is being questioned, with concerns raised about potential frustration and high turnover rates. Critics argue that unless fundamental improvements are made to the working conditions, the impact of recruiting 24,000 teachers may be diminished.

Technological Advancements in Teacher Recruitment and Data Capture:
