GES: JHS Teachers to Spend 210 Days in School 2022 Time Table States

Some teachers of basic schools, specifically Junior High Schools have expressed obsession with the new timetable circulating around and purported to be from the Ghana Education service ahead of the 2022 academic year.

The calendar proposed 100 days for the first semester of Junior High Schools, 7 Public holidays and 25 weeks, Mid Semester break will be 15 March to 19 March 2022 whilst is recommended 110 working days for second semester aside the 7 holy days to be encountered in the year, it will he composed of 23 weeks.

The Academic year is to start from January with the first semester to end in and End in June, the second semester is expected to start in July and End in December.

Some teachers have stated that students absent themselves from school due to the long study period of time, this as a result has made teaching difficult, others added that long semesters without exams is nothing to write hime about, They urged Ghana Education Service to make it a point to sponsor examinations most especially mock exams for students in order for assessment to be easy.

Meanwhile some teachers have also expressed displeasure with recent deductions made on their payslips.

Some teachers paid 220gh cedis and wrote the License Exams, got their provisional License before gaining employment but 100gh was deducted from their PDA too. Till now, that money has not been refunded. Nobody is talking about it not even the teacher unions.

Newly recruited teachers were given half Professional allowance without any reasonable explanation yet nobody seems to care. They only complained amongst themselves but nobody was ready to listen to them. Checks have revealed that, they are the very ones who have the 509gh cedis deducted from their PDA. What crime have they committed?

What is even more painful is that, as they are busy looking for opportunities to deduct, deduct and deduct, they are not concerned about teachers promotion. 2015 and 2016 batch of junior ranks have not been promoted. Two year's on. Now, 2017 year group have also joined the queue.

The Minister for Education, Dr. UAW Adutwum has highlighted that teachers will stop writing lesson notes after they receive their laptops.
