According to a 3News report, teachers remain divided in obeying their leadership directive to observe an industrial action beginning last week Friday.
While some teachers are adhering to the strike directive, others have ignored it and are still teaching, as was discovered during a morning visit to certain schools in Ejisu on Monday, November 7.
When Onuaonline visited Tikrom M/A Junior High School on Monday morning, some teachers were busy teaching classes. Only 7 of the school’s 18 teachers were absent today.
“I decided to come and teach because we are way behind the syllable. Though the strike is important, we have to complete the syllable at least to make up for the contact hours we lost during our previous strike on cost of living allowance”,a teacher, Nana Ampadu stated.
However, Owusu Darko, a different teacher, is there to educate for a different motive.
“Honestly this strike is of no relevance. Why should I abandon my students because of disagreement in the appointment of our Director-General? Instead of our leadership to mobilize themselves and to the government to fight for improved conditions of service, we are boycotting class because of an appointment. I’ll continue to come and teach”
However, it was a field day for the primary pupils as no teacher came around to teach the kids.
