The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has petitioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) to consider recruiting more teachers into the teaching filed.
According to GNAT, teachers in Ghana are being overwhelmed by the huge demands of their work consequently the need to recruit more teachers.
“For instance, some teachers are compelled to teach on both gold and green tracks which wears them down. What has been more burdensome is the fact that teaching and learning resources supplied to the schools have either been woefully inadequate, not delivered on time or not given at all.
“In order to ease the extra burden on schools, GNAT is calling on GES to recruit more teachers in order to improve the quality work output in the various schools across the country,” the President of GNAT, Ms Philippa Larsen, added.
The President of the Association Ms Larsen made this call last Thursday at the launch of the “The GNAT Standpoint on Education”, a book that aims to provide the needed strong foundation at the pre-tertiary sector to improve the quality of public education delivery in the country.
