This will be not be fair. The Coordinator s and circuit supervisor”s use their own money for transport to supervise and monitors schools in their district without the government given them any allowances for their fuel and transportation.They play a very important role in the educational sector but yet they are neglected.How much is the teachers salary that those rendering such serviced travel all round the schools in their municipal or district without any allowances. The government should look into this.
