No response to application for teaching job

Dear Editor,

Parents and guardians pay a lot of money sending their children to school for them to have an education with the hope of getting a good job when they're finished. But often, there are no jobs available. So then they feel unqualified, so they go to U.G. or somewhere else; they spend 2 or 3 or more years there hoping to get a job when they come out. Again, they are often disappointed. Persons have the qualifications, but the jobs are not available.

I am an example, I finished high school with grade 1s and distinctions and up to now, 2 years later, I can't get a job. I applied numerous times to the Teaching Service Commission (T.S.C.) but have had no response.

The PPP/C needs to open their eyes to what is going on in the Ministry of Education. Let more jobs become available to Guyanese who want to work.

Yours faithfully,

Leon J. Suseran
