Rwanda has increased the salaries of primary school teachers by 88 percent, while its secondary school teachers receive a payment increase of 40 percent, effective August 2022.
The Rwandan government announced the increment as part of its earlier promised program to increase the quality of life for teachers.
Among the revised salaries, Ngirente said elementary school teachers will receive a salary increase of up to 88%, while their high school peers will receive a 40% salary increase.
The change comes at a time when a newly hired A2 certified teacher (mostly in elementary school) will have a starting net salary of 50,849 rwf, which is expected to increase to 95,596 rwf.
While the salary of a teacher hired and paid based on an A1 degree is increased by 40 percent of the starting net salary of 54,916, the salary increases to Rwf76882.
The salary of a teacher hired and paid on the basis of grade A0 with a net starting salary of RWF 70,195 must also increase by 40%, which must increase to RWF 98273.
