Rwanda Increases Salaries Of Primary School Teachers By 88%

The Ministry of Education in Rwanda has clarified the just-announced review in teachers’ salaries and the implication of the rise in the remuneration of teachers in primary and secondary schools.

The salary increase was announced by Prime Minister Edouard Ngirente, who said the move is expected to minimise the turnover of teachers in public schools and improve the quality of education.

Addressing a joint parliamentary session on Monday, August 1, the premier announced that primary teachers would get up to 88 per cent in salary increase effective this month.

According to the Minister for Education, Valentine Uwamariya, only primary school teachers with A2 certificates will get the 88 per cent pay rise. That means a primary teacher will receive a net pay of Ksh12,383, up from Ksh6,579.
