Teachers to stop supervising students if;…… – teachers ‘dare’ government

Coalition of Concerned Teachers is asking teachers to stay away from supervising extracurricular activities if government doesn’t rescind its decision to scrap motivation allowance.

The Ministry of Education will from the next academic year stop paying teacher motivation allowance despite resistance from teacher union groups.

President of the Coalition Ernest Opoku told the media the decision is “quite serious” and “uncalled for”.

He said the allowance was not instituted by the government and was therefore surprised it will take that decision to scrap it.

In addition, the teachers are unhappy because the government is not substituting it with any allowance to cushion them like being done to health and other workers.

“Indirectly you are saying that teachers shouldn’t be motivated and that they should stop all extra work they are doing apart from their teaching and learning.”

In the view of the teachers, government’s action would be interpreted as asking them to stop supervising students during prep; should not follow students travelling outside campus; stop supervising when students are sweeping the classrooms.
