Just In:A letter from the teacher unions to NTC


In few weeks ago, National Teaching Council released a letter to the public about how far teachers are building their capacities, number of teachers who have built and those who have no point at all.
The teacher unions have also released a letter to address their concern on the earlier letter sent by the national teaching council, below are some point raised by the teacher unions 
1. There is no law requiring teachers to build up CPD point or risk their job. What makes a teacher is a university or college level training in a teaching subject and teaching methodology, followed by registration by the law. Not a fraudulent scheme of crazy points accumulation from corrupt business units called service providers.
If teachers are to succumb to your lengthy and unending demands, they would have to use all their struggling to appease you with little to no time left to prepare and teach in the classroom.
2.Why must a teacher accumulate up to 85 points to renew his license? why not 2 points or 1? Your service providers are charging Gh 75.00 gh for 4 points. How much would a teacher spent to get all 85 points? What is your understanding of the financial situation of the Ghanaian teacher? Who made that decision to sell points or require teachers to accumulate points? Who did he/she consult? Where on earth do they make decision without involving those it affects? The present day teacher is not the teacher of old. We are no longer easy target for crazy and ill thought out programmes. Teachers didn’t just walk into the Ghanaian classrooms to teach; we went through a professional training. What makes a  teacher a professional teacher is the scientific systematic steps he employs to deliver lessons to his students in the classroom not somebody’s fucking stamp or points.
3. The introduction of the teacher’s professional Development allowance in the past year seems to spur the NTC and their accomplices into targeting the teacher for business.
4. Your so called training materials and service providers does nothing beyond googling up reading materials to read in front of a panel of gullible teachers. Such is not training and it is a shame that an institution like the NTC would want to enforce such abject mediocrity as professional development training. We are better off with our long established practice of going for further studies and undertaking school base in-service training programs for our members.
5. Lastly, we want to remind the NTC and their accomplices that teachers would not fall for their threats. Our employer is the GES not NTC. The leadership of the GES in Accra may be timid and shaky, but not the teacher in the classroom. We aren’t going to fall for any grand scheme of intimidation and negative conditioning.
Below is the release 

This teacher union is not believe to be have registered
