Teacher Unions to declare indifinite strike over the unavailability of textbooks after introducing the new curriculum


The three major teacher unions – Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT-G) – are set to declare an indefinite strike over the unavailability of textbooks and teaching materials after the introduction of the new curriculum.

The strike is set to deepen the woes of school children as the three teacher unions are also part of the ongoing strike embarked upon by a forum of 12 labour unions at the beginning of the term.
Speaking on Radio Ash’s Dwabirem Show on Monday, February 17, monitored by ThebbcGhana.Com, National President of CCT-G Ernest Opoku said their strike is entirely separate from that declared by the forum some weeks ago. This strike is mainly geared towards the unavailability of textbooks for the new curriculum.
The teachers complain the government has failed to deliver on its promise following the introduction of the new curriculum.
Teachers who are already angry at the blatant attitude of the Minister of Education is again calling on the Director-General Of Education, Mr. Adutwum to immediately provide teachers and public schools with the needed textbooks, teaching and learning materials such as lesson notes.
Various Circuit supervisors are also on the necks of teachers as they are giving teachers difficult moments on preparing lesson notes amidst the unavailability of textbooks and lesson notes.
