The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) says the Government of Ghana (GoG) September or November this year will start distributing laptops to teachers in various Senior High Schools (SHSs) across the country.
“The ‘one teacher one laptop’ initiative is a very important thing we needed to do especially around this time that we have Covid and we need to do a hybrid system of teaching and learning,” the GES Director-General told the media.
According to him, the acquisition of the new laptops to teachers in only Senior High Schools (SHSs) follows a meeting held between the Teacher Unions and the Ministry of Education on behalf of the central government.
“The Unions (NAGRAT, GNAT and CCT-GH) went into some negotiation and agreement with the government through the Ministry of Education and it was agreed that we procure and supply the laptops to only SHS teachers,” he noted.
Prof Opoku Amankwa further disclosed that his outfit has received some quantity of the laptops and will in September or November this year supply them to various regional offices of the Service for onward distribution to beneficiaries.
“We have some quantity now which we hope to start supplying them within the next month or two but we want to first do an official launch, the date for the launch of the laptop will be communicated to soon,” the GES staff said.
