One District COHBS Chairperson in the Bono East Region wrote:
"Please I want the names of Heads who are not receiving responsibility allowance. The names should reach me before 12 noon tomorrow, for onward submission to Ghana Education Service Headquarters".
Other categories of teachers within the Ghana Education Service who receive responsibility allowance are form masters or mistresses, chaplains, Imams and Guidance and Counselling Cordinators at the Senior High School level.
According to Ghana Education Service laid down conditions, teachers who are below the rank of principal Superintendent should not be given responsibility allowances.
However, officers like the circuit supervisors, IPPD Cordinators, School Health and Environment Programme (SHEP) Cordinators do not qualify for responsibility allowance.
The Pre-tertiary Teacher Unions namely the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) are mounting pressure on Ghana Education Service to come out with clear conditions of service for their members.
