JHS Teachers cry for motivation for staying six months in school.


some teachers in the Junior High Schools in Ghana public Basic schools have complained about the two semesters system that was adopted by the Ghana Education Service during the reopening of schools after the outbreak of the pandemic.

In a social media post, some of them recounted that for now, they are further with the teaching so as the students. The Junior High school was resumed in June 2021 to continue with their second semester. They said that being in school like this consistently for six months is a punishment Ghana Education Service has put on them without any compensation.

They have complained that even the higher learning institutions such as the universities and colleges of Education do not even practice this kind of system and for that matter, they don’t just understand why it is so for the junior high school level.

As some of them were encouraging their colleagues to do what they can and leaving the rest others were saying that the Ghana Education Service must compensate them for overloading them with work.

The minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum last week said that junior high school was the weakest link in the Educational Environment. Some of the teachers have attributed the blame to him because he is part of those stakeholders who adopted the semester policy.

Most of them today just go to the school to sit down because they are tired and confused about what to teach. Some of them have also said that due to overstaying in school they are seeing absenteeism in both the teachers and the students.

They, therefore, called on the Government and the Ghana Education Service to motivate them for the wonderful job they have done and are still doing in schools.
