The Ondo chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers has described the allegation that some teachers are using pupils for domestic chores in their private homes as a fallacy.
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Doyin Odebowale at a briefing had accused teachers of engaging pupils for domestic chores.
He urged teachers to desist from using pupils to work in the private farms under the guise of practicals for agricultural studies.
But the State Chairman of the NUT, Comrade Victor Akomo, said teachers no longer use pupils for domestic chores in the digital age.
He said, “Teachers don’t do that again. We do not believe it is happening in our schools. We have extra lessons and no time for the pupils to go to any homes. It might be a speculation.
“We are in support to sanction teachers caught.“
