Teachers under the Anloga District Education Directorate are fuming over a decision to force them to pay an amount of GHC 35.00 for a workshop being organized for them at Whuti.
According information published by Informed Teachers Network (ITN) and sighted by Educandghana.net, the workshop is to afford the teachers in the district the opportunity to be oriented on the registration onto the Ghana Teachers Portal and implementation of TCPD activities. This, according to the organizers, is part of NTC’s mandate to license all professional teachers in Ghana to accord them the right to teach in Ghanaian schools.
The workshop which is slated for Wednesday, 13th May, 2021, has however generated uproar as the teachers do not understand why they should be made to pay such an amount of money on a process that they have already registered for. They claim that the organizers could be using this as an opportunity to extort money from them.
“We know what they are up to and it is not funny. This workshop is primarily to make some money from the little allowance the teachers received last year. That is just about it”, one teacher reveals.
“We won’t pay any money for a workshop of this nature. It is not fair because times are hard. Is the payment of this money happening across the country or it’s only Anloga District Education Directorate charging us?, some angry teachers ask.
A timetable has been drawn for the smooth takeoff of the workshop despite the agitations.
