What the Ghanaian teacher is going through is not only depressing but demoralizing. From teaching not meant to make teachers millionaires comment to a 4 percent increase in base pay for the year, teaching at the JHS without the requisite training, and teaching for over two years without textbooks. The worse teachers deserve is a sincere acknowledgment of their dexterity and a conscious effort to improve their working conditions.
The latest educationist to join the call for the government to place premium value on teachers is Teacher Kwadwo, the sensational teacher and vlogger.
According to him, the biggest maltreatment the Ghana Education Service (GES) is mating out to teachers in its failure to make Text Books available yet force teachers to teach and perform magic.
He added that teachers are not motivated but rather fear is put in them. According to him this treatment amount to slavery which must be shelved by the education service.
Another educator, Hon Jerry Akporhor has this pathetic assessment of the Ghanaian teacher to share. He has called on the government and the leadership of the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to #FIXGES.
“A trained teacher from the College of Education works for four years, took Study Leave to study for another four years, he spends not less than 20,000gh to acquire the new certificate and skills, comes back and he’s upgraded to the next rank and only 200ghcis added to his salary. Calculate how many years he will work to recoup his investment?”
All is not well with the Ghanaian teacher. The promotion of those who sat for the March promotion examination is still hanging with many yet to come to terms with the results of the examination whiles other teachers are waiting for their defusing legacy arrears.
In the wake of the new curriculum, teachers started innovating, leading to scripted notes that brought some level of uniformity in content and made the burden of the teacher less difficult. Yet calls from some quarters required that teachers must still write or lesson notes.
