”Students’ welfare will be prioritized because the NDC believes education is a right, not a privilege.” the party said.
”Furthermore, the next NDC government will usher in a new dawn for teachers through restoring the dignity of teachers and make them integral partners in national policy reforms.”
Intimidation of Teachers
The NDC said it shall allow teachers to speak out their views on the betterment of the sector without harassment and intimidation.
”The intimidation and harassment of teachers who speak out will cease forthwith. Improved teacher conditions of service, incentives and all-round availability of Teaching and Learning Materials (TLMs) will be a priority.”
”We will deepen engagement with all schools through the community, unions and ParentTeacher Associations (PTA) for efficient running.”

BECE, WASSCE Performance
The NDC said gains made by the previous NDC administration in quality outcomes, with all-time best performances in the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) and West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) have been eroded.
”In addition, efforts at expanding access and decongesting, particularly, CommunityDay School projects, have largely been deliberately abandoned by the Akufo-Addo Government.”
