The GES official speaking on the Accra-based UTV Mpu ne Mpu show monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said the newly posted teachers will serve for at least a year or two hence, the need for a motivational package
According to Prof, his outfit under the auspices of the Ministry of Education (MoE) has partnered with the World Bank to support enhance the standard of teaching and the lives of both students and teachers in the remote areas.
He said the partners introduced the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) to support the implementation of the Government’s Education Sector Plan (ESP) with a focus on basic education.
“Approximately 10,000 poorly performing public basic schools, which represents approximately one-half of basic schools are expected to benefit from the GALOP learning interventions,” he told host Mpu ne Mpu show.
The Director-General noted teachers under the GALOP agreement with the Bank are to be posted to the various rural communities to help the students.
He in the interview admitted that his outfit sometimes posts teachers who did not select such regions or remote areas to teach the students.
“So because we do such postings under GALOP, we will give the newly posted teachers some motivational package for them to teach well, yes so we will motivate them,” Prof Kwasi-Opoku told UTV’s Agya Kwabena.
