GH¢20 teachers’ motivation under Free SHS is too small – GNAT

GH¢20 teachers’ motivation under Free SHS is too small – GNAT

Mr Prosper Takye, treasurer for the Ghana National Teachers Association (GNAT), Ashanti Region, has raised concerns on the need for Nana Addo’s government to properly  motivate teachers under the free SHS policy.

He describes the current motivation fee for teachers as too small and not  good enough.

“In relation to service rendered by teachers, government must do whatever it takes to motivate teachers to work effectively for quality education”,he opined.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s government, led by Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo – Addo, has so far fulfilled the promise they made during the 2016 general elections to make Senior High School (SHS) education free.

Aside the payment of fees for the newly admitted students, the government has also taken the responsibility of paying ‘teachers’ motivation fees’ which was previously paid by parents.  The original amount was GH¢10 which government has increased by 100%

Speaking on Kumasi based Otec Fm , Mr Takye  expressed worry over the insignificant amount and  said it may not be able motivate teachers to deliver the quality of education the country seeks.

“We have not heard of any tangible additions that are supposed to be given to teachers amidst our hard work. We will continue to do what we are doing to maintain the quality education the country is already enjoying”

He stated that if indeed the government wants ‘free SHS’ program to succeed, subsequently, much attention must be given to teachers.

“This is because we are the final implementers. We are in the classroom, and whatever transpires in the classroom depends on the teacher, therefore government should take teachers serious”,e chided.
