EducationGhana, September 5, Laptop: Teacher Unions at the Pre-tertiary Education have criticised the decision of the Government to give teachers laptops of low quality and further launch them to the world.
The unions described the situation as highly patronising and grossly disrespectful for government to give laptops of low quality to teachers.
The Unions including the Innovative Teachers and the All Teachers Alliance Ghana (ATAG) made this argument in a petition to the Commission on Human Rights and Administratie Justice (CHRAJ) on March 18, 2021.
”It is highly patronising and grossly disrespectful for government to give laptops of low quality to teachers as if teachers are so poor that we cannot afford quality laptops as our personal assets.” They said.
According to the Unions, in order to show respect to teachers and the labour law government must acquire laptops such as hp, Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer, and Dell for teachers.
They continued, that the laptops must be given to teachers free of charge, questioning the purpose of Article 71 against the plight of teachers.
”In order to show respect to teachers and the labour law government must acquire laptops such as hp, Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer, and Dell for teachers.”
”The laptops must be given to teachers free of charge. What is good for Article 71 officeholders is equally good for teachers under section 9(a) of the Labour Act.”
Call on CHRAJ
Teacher Unions have petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the Government’s One Teacher, One Laptop policy initiative that has been launched over the week.
According to the Unions, the petition was pursuant to Article 218(a) (e) of the 1992 constitution and section 7(1) (a) of CHRAJ Act for CHRAJ to investigate the procurement of 280,000 laptops by the Ministry of Education.
