NAGRAT was not consulted before school reopening decision was taken

National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT)

Mr. Eric Angel Carbonu, President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has disclosed that the association which is a stakeholder in education was not consulted before the school reopening decision was taken for second-year students in both Junior and Senior High students. 

The 16th National Address of the President indicated that stakeholders were consulted. However, the revelations by NAGRAT and GNAPS seem to contradict that pronouncement 

In his address, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced that the Ghana Education Service in consultation with relevant stakeholders has taken the decision to reopen the school for JHS2 and SHS2 students from October 5th to December 14th.

In that same address, the postponement of the academic year for classes lower than SHS2 and JHS2 were to kick start in January 2021.

In an interview on Happy Morning Show, the leadership of  (NAGRAT) disclosed saying “We were not involved at the consultative level…Our inputs were not sought so we cannot say whether the timing was correct or not”.

In his view, teachers in schools and school leaders are going to be present in handling student and it would have been prudent to consult such stakeholders before arriving at the final decision.

However, he said they support the decision of the government “A date was announced so the teachers will be there to work on that day”, he said.

The announcement did not excite private schools and GNAPS who have indicated how disturbed they are by the decision to keep learners at home till January 2021. They have called on other stakeholders to intervene as the private school worker has been out of work for 6 months and a further 4 months will be disastrous for them. 

GNAPS has indicated it will continue to seek for the best in the interest of members whose plights have not been dealt with by the government.
