Teachers call on MoE to help solve Accommodation deficits in rural areas

Teachers in the rural communities in The country are calling on the Education Ministry to as a matter of urgency,come to their aid in support of accommodation deficits in the rural communities.

In a letter drafted by one Boutrous Kojo Saah Arthur, a 24-year old newly posted teacher at Pomasi M/A Basic School in the Central Region of Ghana,to the Education Minister on behalf of all teachers in the rural communities, he initially thanked the government for its  contributions to Education ,especially the free SHS implementation which is geared towards seeing every Ghanaian child go through High School Education .

According to him, he was  writing to the Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh  to draw his attention on the need to put teachers into consideration when building schools and posting teachers to deprived areas.

“Teachers need to be housed,I mean teachers need Bungalows to stay in since there are  no houses in deprived areas to even rent when they have their own money.”he lamented.

He lamented that  teachers in deprived areas are shouldered with too heavy work loads that some need to cover 2 to 3 km by foot before getting to work,others board vehicles of at least Ghc 6 a day and the rest  have to live in mud houses without toilet,bathroom,kitchen just in the name of teaching.

“Same persons have no electricity,no network,no potable water where they find themselves  .So what is our crime? You are able to provide classroom for children without Bungalows for the instructors (teachers) from far distance at places where there are no houses for rent.”he indicated.

“I don’t understand why we can provide affordable housing for the middle class in the cities without providing just 12 bed room Bungalow for teachers in deprived areas just to motivate them to stay and teach the poor who constantly vote for your parties every election year.Can MOE boast of number of bungalows to schools built in deprived areas since 2000?”he questioned.

“Does the teacher also not deserve a nice house to stay in?, or we can only stay in the nice house when we go on pension with this our “fia” money?”he asked.

“For a developing country that want to develop education system,it’s time to pay greater attention to our teachers.There are many who constantly leave the village (causing constant change of teachers which affects academics work )every academic year because of poor living conditions in the deprived areas.”he said.

He concluded with a statement indicating the failure of the Education Ministry to help address such problems.
