The minister of Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has disclosed that newly qualified trained teachers that were posted to communities they find difficult to speak and understand the local language of the people have been worked on by the management of Ghana Education Service.
According to the Education minister, some reposting has already been done of which most of them are reposted to different communities. He further explained that some of them are yet to know their new stations.
During an interview at UTV, on Friday 25th February 2022, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum said the management of the Ghana Education Service is working on teachers who find it difficult to speak the local language of the children to ensure those newly posted teachers are reposted to communities that they can speak and understand the common language of the children to improve teaching and learning.
Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum made mentioned that the current system of posting of teachers doesn’t offer teachers the opportunity to choose or select the region or District of their choice but in a few years to come the system of posting teachers to a Region, District or School will change.
The minister made it clear that years to come newly qualified trained teachers will be made to select their region of choice and if there is a vacancy then the opportunity will be given for them to select their preferred District and School.
This will help to eliminate the challenges and problem that the current system pose to the majority of teachers.
