Teachers’ Contributions

”Furthermore, the next NDC government will usher in a new dawn for teachers through restoring the dignity of teachers and make them integral partners in national policy reforms.”

”The intimidation and harassment of teachers who speak out will cease forthwith. Improved teacher conditions of service, incentives and all-round availability of Teaching and Learning Materials (TLMs) will be a priority.”

PTA and Exams

”We will deepen engagement with all schools through the community, unions and ParentTeacher Associations (PTA) for efficient running.”

”The gains made by the previous NDC administration in quality outcomes, with all-time best
performances in the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) and West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) have been eroded.”

”In addition, efforts at expanding access and decongesting, particularly, Community Day School projects, have largely been deliberately abandoned by the Akufo-Addo Government.”
