Ferdinand | EducationGhana | November 29 | Ghana’s Teacher License Inspection Sparks Controversy: Possibilities of Downsizing and Salary Cuts Raise Concerns
Explore the impact of the NTC‘s nationwide inspection of teachers’ licenses in Ghana as GES unveils guidelines for compliance. Controversy ensues amid concerns of downsizing and potential salary cuts. Find out how this move could affect educators and the education sector.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has concurrently released guidelines outlining the compliance process for teachers.
This initiative is reminiscent of a recent staff audit in a tertiary institution, where many experienced a shift in their placement on the single-spine structure. Notably, individuals were demoted based on qualifications, with some witnessing a drastic reduction from Level 16 to 7.
This approach has sparked comparisons, drawing attention to the potential consequences for teachers who have dedicated years to their profession.
The looming implementation set for January has triggered apprehension among educators, with some foreseeing a significant outcry.
The analogy of demoting a Police Chief Inspector with years of service and promotions to the entry-level of Constable, leading to a substantial salary cut, highlights the potential impact on teachers’ livelihoods.
One of the anticipated repercussions is the financial strain on teachers, especially those who have availed themselves of CAGD Payroll loan advances.
The banking sector is predicted to be among the biggest losers, facing challenges related to the repayment of hundreds of millions of CAGD Payroll loan advances.
As the education sector braces for these changes, stakeholders are closely monitoring the situation, questioning the rationale behind the inspection and its broader implications.
Stay tuned for further updates on this developing story as educators and officials navigate through the complexities of the upcoming nationwide teacher license inspection.
