Academic activities grind to a halt over teachers’ strike [Video]

A strike by teacher unions over the appointment of the new Ghana Education Service (GES) Director-General has brought academic work in schools to a halt.

Three teacher unions on Friday declared a nationwide strike over the appointment of Dr Eric Nkansah, a banker as the Director-General of Education.

They are the National Association of Graduate Teachers, the Ghana National Association of Teachers and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers.

The industrial action took effect on Friday, November 4, 2022, but the impact on teaching and learning activities was felt as pupils reported to school on Monday, November 7.

Checks by Adom News‘ reporters in most schools nationwide revealed pupils were present with no teachers while others were completely closed down.

Some students in Bole for instance also returned home while others played around after their own colleagues supervised the morning assembly.
