Teacher Union Strike: Koforidua School For Deaf Students Roaming as Teacher’s are on Strike

The strike action by the three teacher unions in Ghana has disrupted teaching and learning at the Koforidua School for the Deaf.

Three teacher unions; the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT) have been on strike since November 4, protesting the appointment of Dr Eric Nkansah as the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service.

Several meetings between the unions and the Ministry since the protest began ended in a stalemate.

The GES has refused to shut down both basic and Senior High Schools and instead directed headmasters to take charge to ensure the schools continue to run.

The Koforidua School for the Deaf is one of the affected schools.

Teachers in the school belonging to the striking teacher unions have joined the strike action hence do not report to school.

Whilst some of the day students report to the school, others roam in town.

Some of the hearing impaired students met roaming in Koforidua township told Bryt FM, teaching and learning have been disrupted by the strike action.

They appealed to the government to resolve the impasse immediately so their teachers to return to school.

Classrooms are virtually empty with fewer activities as few students on campus roam

Meanwhile, the National Labour Commission has invited representatives of the government and striking teacher unions for a hearing in relation to the impasse between the two parties.

They are scheduled to appear before the commission on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at 10 am.

“With this intervention, the union is advised to stay all ongoing/intended action(s) and appear as scheduled,” a copy of the invitation letter said.
