Angel made this revelation on Dwaso Nsem on Adom 106.3 FM in Accra on September 6, 2021.

During the phone-in discussion, the NAGRAT boss said the majority of teachers were happy with the government initiative to support their work with laptops in the current technological trends in education.

Cost of Laptop

Though Mr Carbonu was unsure of the exact cost of the laptop at the time of the interview, he later came out with a press statement to announce the exact cost of the Teachers’ Mate 1 Laptops.

The Unions in a letter drafted by the President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) Angel Agbe Caebonu on September 6, 2021, indicated, that the One Teacher One Laptop Project was the intervention of the three Unions.

According to him, the three unions suggested to the government to provide laptops to all teachers to aid in effective teaching through the application and use of ICT.
