The leadership of teacher unions in the country have appealed to the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to allow them to take over the matter of the 11 interdicted heads of senior high schools.

The President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Eric Angel Carbonu, who made the appeal, said they wanted to handle the issue because the headteachers were their members.

“The leadership of the unions — the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the Coalition of Concerned Teachers of Ghana (CCT), NAGRAT, and the Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU) — now want to take over the issue and sit down with the GES and the Ministry of Education (MOE), to discuss and negotiate on behalf of our headmasters and headmistresses who have been interdicted.

“I am very happy to inform you that the Deputy Director-General of the GES in charge of Management Services, Stephen Kwaku Owusu, has asked us to come to his office next week,” he said.

Mr Carbonu was speaking at the launch of the 25th anniversary celebration of the founding of NAGRAT in Accra yesterday.

The anniversary is a year-long celebration, with each region assigned a particular month to celebrate the event.

The Eastern Region would kick-start the celebration in January 2024.

It would be climaxed in October 2024, with a national durbar in Accra.
