A retired Director of Ghana Education Service (GES), Mr. Stephen Appiah Boadu, has appealed to the Ministry of Education to decentralize posting of newly trained teachers to their stations.
Speaking in an interview with Soireenews.com, Mr Boadu noted at times it is very pathetic to see a teacher been posted to a community which he or she cannot even speak the language those in these communities.
"When it happens like that the teacher find it extremely difficult to express him or herself when teaching the students who don't understand the English Language," he explained.
He appealed to the ministry to allow the posting to be done at district or municipal level.
He made these statements yesterday at Asamankese during 2022 teachers award organized by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower West Akyim Constituency in the Eastern Region, Honourable, Charles Acheampong and supported by the MCE for the municipality, Mr Seth Oduro Boadu.
The MP Lower West Akyim Constituency who initiated the award scheme said teachers are very essential in our communities and need to be celebrated.
"That was the reasons why l initiated such an award scheme to motivate the hard working once," the MP noted.
For his part, the MCE for West Akyim Municipal, Mr. Seth Oduro Boadu said he was very happy such award came on yesterday because they planned to do it in 2020 but due to COVID-19 they couldn't do it.
He added it has been 15 good years that such award took place in West Akyim Municipalty therefore doing it this time around is something they are all happy for.
He therefore urged those who couldn't win the award to try next time maybe it will be their turn.
