The management of the Ghana Education Service has warned basic school heads to stop the practice of forcing teachers to teach subjects that the teachers are not trained for with immediate effect.
According to the management of the Ghana Education Service, their attention has been drawn to the practice where some headmasters compel teachers who are posted in their schools as French teachers are prevented from teaching French but rather asked to teach different subjects.
This according to GES is a big impediment to ensuring the smooth implementation of the standard-based and Common Core programme French curricula which are aimed at ensuring Ghana’s vision of becoming a bilingual country.
GES by this notice is warning all basic school heads to stop the practice of forcing teachers to teach subjects which they are not trained for be it French or other subjects that are taught at the public basic schools in the country.
Headteachers are encouraged to treat this directive with the seriousness it deserves to ensure successful implementation of the Curriculum.
