Academic Pursuits Of Teachers Not Reflecting In Their Output

Ms Cynthia Gbadago, Adaklu District Director of Education, has noted that the academic pursuits of teachers are not reflecting in their output


“Most teachers are only interested in obtaining certificates and degrees to be upgraded but their output is far below expectation,” she stressed.

TeacherMs Gbadago, who was recently transferred to the district, was speaking at a meeting with teachers from Adaklu-Wumenu Circuit of the district at Adaklu-Kodzobi, as part of her familiarisation tour of the area.

She told the teachers that their output must reflect their qualification.

Ms Gbadago said the new Ghana Education Service policy says that “no teacher will be upgraded unless he or she serve the service for seven continuous years”.

She told the teachers that it is their job to discover and nurture the latent talents of their pupils.

Ms Gbadago cautioned teachers who “manufacture” marks for their pupils, to create the impression they are active must stop the practice.

She also warned those who “dodge” topics they are not comfortable with to desist from the practice.

Ms Gbadago asked the teachers not to promote pupils who could not read as “the difference between a literate and illiterate is the ability to read”.

Togbe Dzegblade IV, Chief of Adaklu-Kodzobi, expressed regret at the decline in the academic performance of pupils in the district and called for attitudinal change to nib it in the bud.
