Primary School Teacher Reviews

What is it like working as a Primary School Teacher at Gauteng Department of Education?
Primary School Teacher in Pretoria:
"Pay Decreases Rather Than Increase. Training Is Useless."
Pros: I get to teach children subjects that I am passionate about.
Cons: Training from the DOE is useless and very often a waste of time. Salary is very small for amount of work and qualifications.
