Heads of schools have worked Under fear and threat over the last 4 years -GES Staff Explains

To begin with, i was a member of Heads who openly campaigned for change in 2016 but things have not been as expected.

I have been a Headmaster for over 12 years and in my last days to retire from the GES after 35 years of active service. I want to emphasise that, in all my years in the classroom or office, never in The History Of Ghana has Heads Worked Under Fear , Threat And Stress As has Been in The Last Four Years

For the first time, GES officials boycotted CHASS conference because Oga wasn’t happy with an address delivered by the president of CHASS. Mr President, no government succeeded with anti teacher policies.

 It happened under Kuffour when CSSPS was introduced and Heads were described as corrupt and teachers had their salaries withheld, the party lost the next election. Mahama government introduced some anti teacher policies on nonpayment of arrears, delay in promotion etc and they lost the next election. 

Having been a Headmaster since Kufour’s regime, I’m in a position to predict what may happen if certain things remain unchanged. Many Heads, 1st and 2nd cycle institutions, have suffered undue punishments without recourse to GES structures.

Mr. President, please open your eyes over the education sector before it’s too late. Some of us are on our way out but I pity colleagues who are still in the service. The constant threats on Heads must stop.
