The paper concludes that various reforms have been carried out in the public service in form of severance retirement and pension reforms, which aim to ensure stability in the process of retirement and adequate resettlement for retired officers. But, little or no emphasis has been made on the teachers in the school system. Teachers are part of the system and therefore should not be left out and must definitely retire.
