A scandal is currently rocking the Bilingual High School of Mbandjock as allegations of punitive maneuvers and collusion between the principal, Ayissi Jean de Dieu, and local administrative authorities emerge. Eighteen teachers from the OTS movement are at the center of this controversy, having been assigned to sensitive regions in the Far North, considered the ultimate form of punishment according to the principal.

This unilateral decision of assignment by the principal has sparked an outcry in the local educational community. OTS teachers, already engaged in their educational mission, find themselves abruptly uprooted from their usual environment to be transferred to regions known for their socio-economic difficulties.

The North, Far North, and Adamawa regions represent areas where poverty and underdevelopment persist, symbolizing an extreme form of punishment in the eyes of the Bilingual High School of Mbandjock principal.

This punitive action has raised questions about the real motivations behind this decision and has sparked a heated debate within the educational community. The affected teachers see this measure as an infringement on their fundamental right to practice their profession in acceptable conditions, while also questioning the legality and ethics of these assignments.

The impact of this situation on the quality of education in these targeted regions is also a matter of concern. “The socio-economic and security challenges faced by these areas could compromise the professional and personal stability of the affected teachers, but also affect the education of students who may be deprived of essential educational resources,” says one teacher.

Calls for a thorough investigation and a review of these assignments are multiplying, as the educational community and human rights advocates express their deep concern about this decision with potentially harmful consequences for the education and well-being of teachers and students.

Equity and respect for teachers’ rights remain at the heart of the debates raised by this issue, challenging the administration and human resources management in the education sector in Cameroon.
