Angry teachers demand for their laptops


It mostly awful when a promise is not fulfilled in the due time, it erases trust and believe between parties.

Teacher unions together with Ghana Education service and the Ministry of Education brought up an intelligent idea one teacher one laptop policy, some teachers embraced the news knowing they would be provided with their preferred laptop but it turned up in the other way round. Others were not much happy because the said laptop were to be deducted from teachers Continuous Development Allowance which is paid yearly, a lot of agitations went on about the deduction of the laptops from the Professional Development Allowance. One teacher said, this laptop is aimed to aid teaching and learning, so where on earth will the government sell an incubator to doctors or nurse to treat their patients?, it is a means to rob the Ghanaian teacher he added.
