Becoming a university graduate teacher in Ghana is a self-imposed curse?

graduate teacher in Ghana 2021 Nov/Dec registration

Becoming a university graduate teacher in Ghana should be a blessing to the nation and its schools, but the reality is that it is not. Instead, it has turned out to be a curse for many students pursuing education at the university and graduates from these public institutions.

What is the usefulness of these trained teachers by our universities and why roll out such programs in the first place if the government of Ghana does not need their services in our schools?

In a statement from the GES Deputy Director-General, Mr Tandoh, his outfit has been given a financial clearance to recruit and post over 6,000 university graduates before December 31, 2020.

Past experiences and similar pronouncements by the GES does cast a doubt on this information disclosed by Mr Tandoh.

The government continues to give priority to teachers trained in the various Colleges of Education and does not consider the quality of teachers who received their training in the various public universities.

Do not be surprised if this turns out to be another unfulfilled promise by the GES to teachers in this category.

It is a few days to the end of December 2020. Will the Management of the Ghana Education Service consider and release postings before the December 31 deadline? Or we will enter the new year with their selective teacher posting strategies that are not inclusive, unfair to university-trained teachers, which seems not to have equity in the appointment of teachers?

For now, becoming a university graduate teacher in Ghana is a self-imposed curse; GES and the MoE are not ready to reverse the curse and offer such teachers opportunities to contribute to the educational development of our learners.

Indeed, it is tough to be a teacher who has been trained in a public university in Ghana. Until this old trick of preferring College of Education Teachers to teachers who offered education-related programs at the universities is changed, there will be the need for government to stop offering such programs at the various universities.
