A group calling itself the Victims of Un Upgraded In-service Teachers have called on President Akuffo Addo to upgrade them to the rank of Principal Superintendent in the Ghana Education Service (GES).
The teachers in an appeal to the President on December 3, 2020, said they are a group of teachers, numbering over four thousand (4000) in the entire country.
Most of them completed various Colleges of Education in 2013 and have also completed their top-up degree programmes through Sandwich and or Distance Learning, between 2016 and 2018, and were due for upgrading to the PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT rank in 2019.

VICTIMS OF UN UPGRADED IN-SERVICE GRADUATE TEACHERS
H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo,
A HUMBLE APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA TO UPGRADE US TO PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT
It is with a very heavy heart that we write this, and hope fervently that it reaches you as early as possible.
We are a group of teachers, numbering over four thousand (4000) in the entire country. Most of us completed various Colleges of Education in 2013. We have also completed our top-up degree programmes through Sandwich and or Distance Learning, between 2016 and 2018, and were due for upgrading to the PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT rank in 2019.

We have however been denied of upgrading, with excuses which are however difficult for even intellectuals to make meaning out of them.
We have been to our respective Regional Ghana Education Service offices across the country, as well as the GES Headquarters on many occasions, only to be told one story after another. We have reported this to our Teacher Unions and every institution we thought could be of assistance to us, but all to no avail.
Many of us teach in very deprived areas in the country and took loans to further our education. We feel neglected, unduly victimized and cheated which has caused us both emotionally and financially traumatized.

It hurts us to know that some of our colleagues in other regions who are on the same level as we are, have been upgraded whilst we remain un-upgraded. It hurts so much to know that teachers who recently completed Colleges of Education are placed on the Principal Superintendent rank when we who were supposed to be on that same rank about fifteen (15) months ago, still remain un-upgraded.
We know His Excellency, that you are a very listening president who cares so much about educational institution in Ghana of which teachers are no exception. We are of the view that our case has not been brought to you hence, the blatant delay by some few individuals to soil your integrity so far as teachers welfare is a concern.
We are very hopeful that you would resolve our plight, and cause the appropriate authority to upgrade us accordingly, to put smiles back on our faces.
