Include us in your latest postings – jobless teachers

Education
Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh

Members of the Coalition of Unposted Qualified Trained Teachers with index numbers of 2017 and below, have called on the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) to include them in the third batch of postings, which, according to them, is underway, while a court proceeding against them is pending.

On 13 January 2020, the Ghana Police Service arrested 19 members of the coalition for acting unlawfully and abusing the Public Order Act by disturbing when they marched to the Education Ministry to demand their postings.

They were arraigned on Wednesday, 15 January 2020 but the court did not sit.

In a statement, the teachers said: “We have not heard anything from the Ghana Education Service (GES) and Ministry of Education (MOE). Per the information we have gathered, in a week or two, another list of postings will be released but ours may not be part.

“We are, therefore, appealing to all stakeholders to kindly do a follow-up to the Ghana Education Service and Ministry of Education to help include the backlog of 2017 and 2016 qualified trained teachers into the third batch of postings which is underway, while the court proceeding is pending.”
