Education Department staff numbers have increased by 20% over last five years. So why don’t we have enough teachers to fully operate schools?

In 2020/2021 (the most recent completed academic year) the number of staff actually employed by the DESC in the teacher / lecturer category remained precisely steady at 990. However, the number of other staff employed by the DESC had increased by almost 400 extra staff over the last five yars to 1,465 staff – a remarkable increase of 36% extra staff in the non-teacher/lecturer categories.
