As we all can attest to the fact that Private School Teachers in Ghana have not been treated well at all as they seem to be exempted from government policies.
One of the though times private school teachers went through was the era of the COVID-19 pandemic when private school teachers helps were elevated that the government was preparing stimulus package for them which didn't materialised.
Today in At. John's Preparatory School in Achimota around ABC, there there was a seminar held there to talk to Private School Teachers on teacher license. The seminar was organised by the National Council of Private School Teachers, a council that was established in 2019, with the aim of being the voice of Private School Teachers.
The question I would like to ask is that "what makes this council different from the likes of others?".
In attendance were, Mr. Francis Kwesi Adai who is the chairman of NTC, according to him in May 19th 2021, the program of certificating all teachers in the Greater Accra Region will be launched, and by the end of this month of May, all the private school teachers in the Greater Accra Region will be certificated.
They spoke about how they could convince private school owners to treat their teachers well and how they can also use their council to also fight for teachers.
The chairman of the council, who is in the person of Mr James Ackon, he thought of bringing this council into existing after seeing that there is no one that seems to be speaking for the private school teacher. He said all private school teachers who join the council, will be helped to obtain temporarily license for three years that is non-professional teachers in the private school sector.
Mr Ackon and his team seem to be having a wonderful plans for the private school teachers but time will tell whether it is not going to be like those who had great ideas but after establishment what they were established to be dealing with, seem not to be solved.
