GNAT EXECUTIVES

Together with other teacher unions, the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) and the proposed 20-25% salary increase for teachers based on the current cost of living in the country, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) went to the negotiating table. Since then, the teachers’ unions have been negotiating with the Pay and Labor Commission.

The Salaries and Labor Commission has negotiated with the Labour Unions that wage increases of 12.5 per cent will take effect from January 2021.

The Commission on Salaries and Labor has decided on a 12.5 percent pay increase for all public sector employees that will take effect in January 2021.

From January 2021, the government will continue to pay teachers professional development allowances per month.

The 12.5 percent would at least cushion teachers’ salaries with the inclusion of the professional development allowance.

Teachers are information packages in our nation’s growth, teachers deserve better service conditions, government has agreed to improve teachers’ service conditions.

The government has provided a high-speed fiber optic Wi-Fi internet in all senior high schools with the common core curriculum emphasizing information and communication technology (ICT) in all senior high schools to support teachers to own laptops. By taking 70 percent of the cost of laptops and teachers pay 30 percent, which will be spread over a period of 12 months, the government will procure laptops for teachers

Starr News reports that after he was disciplined, the pupil fled home, picked up a gang in a Sprinter Bus and stormed the school, leaving the teacher with a facial injury. 
The teacher was saved by his fellow teachers and was sent to LEKMA Hospital to collect and release his wounds later on.

I Will Change The Lives Of Teachers For The Better Because I Know Their Cry-Minister Of Education Designate Speaks

Published

on

The Minister-designate, who was a former Deputy Minister of Education in the first term of the government led by Akufo Addo, vowed to provide quality leadership when given the opportunity to achieve the reform agenda of the government in the education sector.

I’m a ‘chief teacher,’ and when I become minister, you’ll see me teaching in the classroom with my marker,” Dr. Adutwum assured.”

He vowed to provide the resources needed for talented yet needy students from impoverished communities to pursue their dream courses at universities. For that, he made reference a month ago to paying fees for 30 students to join university.

Again, he indicated that he would do everything in his power to make teachers satisfied with the job as they make up the most important part of the education of the country.

After his vetting, many people say that even from presidents they have heard plenty of promises and nothing really has been accomplished with all their promises, and so they are fed up with the fact that politicians have to lair to them with vain promises that are never accomplished.
However, those citizens’ arguments may be valid in some way, but I think we had him in office for 4 years as the then Deputy Education

Minister for the 2016-2020 governance cycle under his Excellency President Akufo Addo’s first-term administration.

Now, drawing on what was seen some years ago as the Deputy Minister of Education under his administration, we assume he will actually enforce, if not all, some of his commitments that will affect the growth of teachers and students.
