The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said that it shall provide Teachers with free Tablets to facilitate Teaching and Learning when it takes over the management of the state in 2021.
The party made this revelation in its 2020 Manifesto dubbed “The People’s Manifesto”
According to the NDC, it shall fast track promotions and applications for academic progression in the teaching profession.
”The NDC is keenly aware of the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic and is, therefore, committed to providing a compliant and resilient education system. Hence, we will complement the current teaching and learning system by increasing the use of educational technologies.”
The NDC said E-learning in all educational institutions will be a major priority in its next government.
”We will embark on an aggressive programme of retraining both instructors and learners.”

”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.”
”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.”
PTA and Exams
”We will deepen engagement with all schools through the community, unions and ParentTeacher Associations (PTA) for efficient running.”
”The 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, Community Day School projects, have largely been deliberately abandoned by the Akufo-Addo Government.”
