The District Director of Education at the Bia West District Education Directorate in the Western Region ,Me Stephen Eboh Koblah has indicated authoritatively that the Promotion of Teachers in his Directorate to the various ranks in the Ghana Education Service was strictly by his own discretion.
The District Director made this revelation during a meeting with the Circuit Supervisors in his district on January 29,,2018 and was intercepted by EducationGhana.net .
The director further indicated he chooses who to promote and who to fail.
Meanwhile, teachers in his district were not clear on why he should have promotion of Teachers at his discretion and still allow the teachers go through the promotion interviews.
Teachers who applied for Promotion last Academic Year were denied interviews in that regard until the First Term of the 2017/18 Academic Year of which the promotion letters have not issued to the respective applicants as at the time of filing this report .
It is unclear whether promotion of Teachers in the Ghana Education Service was strictly by the discretion of the Directors without necessarily taking into consideration the neccessary requirements that qualifies an individual teachers for such purposes.
