In the wake of heated arguments ongoing among teachers and district education officers concerning the writing of lesson notes into notebooks, it is surprising to say that no teacher union has come to support or otherwise speak against the issue at hand.
Here is the case where teachers are being forced to painstakingly write lessons to be taught in class into notebooks even though the same notes are made available in soft copy versions and even uploaded on the Teachers Mate (TM1) laptops, currently being distributed to teachers in all public basic schools.
Meanwhile, none of the six teacher unions at the pre-tertiary education level has come out with a circular or even made a comment on the subject, Bricy Boateng has noticed. Let's assume it turned out that a leader of one of the teacher associations has declared support or otherwise on the subject, why are teachers not talking about it?
Teacher unions are supposed to speak on behalf of their members and also seek to satisfy their interest,, but it seems they are focused on other things. Although several bloggers have written on the issue of lesson notes writing, after I first published it, the Ghana Education Service (GES) and teacher unions are yet to utter a word on it.
Teachers are therefore calling on the leaders of the six teacher unions to speak on the matter and cause the employer to speak on the same subject. When this is done by both parties, peace will be fostered in the service.
