Special classes for Form 2 students not “by force” – NAGRAT

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has cautioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) against forcing its members to take part in a special class session for Form 2 students.

The GES, in a bid to make up for lost contact hours, asked all SHS teachers to return to the classroom from next week, 19 August 2019 for the special sessions.

But the teachers insist vacations are for rest.

NAGRAT President, Mr Angel Carbonu told Class News that none of the teachers can be compelled to attend the vacation classes and teach the students.

“It cannot be by compulsion and that those who do not want to be part of that intervention programme should have the right to exercise the right not to be part of the programme.

“I did not hear the Director-General mention that in his press statement, so, NAGRAT is issuing a press release indicating that we’ll not stand by for anybody who does not want to be part of the programme to be victimised.

“The Form 2 intervention programme should be optional, and it cannot be by compulsion, and that all teachers cannot be directed to be part of it. So, we’re issuing a caution statement that those who want to be part of that programme can be part of it and those who don’t want to be part cannot be compelled to be part of that programme.”
