The teacher who went viral teaching ICT on the blackboard in 2018 quizzes writes…
In 2018, when I went viral with my drawing of Microsoft word application on the chalkboard, I was asked to write a report(GES PROPAGANDA) to the then acting Director of Education for Ejura-Sekyedomase at Mampong. I wrote the letter and carried it along with the first laptop I received to Asante Mampong.
On reaching there, I introduced myself and the acting director got furious with me simply because, according to her, she had a call from the highest office questioning what’s happening at her Municipal. So she asked me the following questions:
1. Why did you do that?
2. Are you a trained teacher?
3. Have you read the code of ethics of GES?
I kept my cool to all these questions and answered only the third one by saying NO and she was like “that’s why”
Today, I decided to go through the code of ethics of GES and saw this “ TEACHERS ARE TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF THE EMPLOYER “.
So I’m asking GES if I had protected their interest by not sharing how I teach ICT without computers, would I have gotten two furnished ICT laboratories for the town they posted me to teach?
GES posts teachers to places where those teachers had to cross rivers to school to teach, did they protect the interest of the teachers that they can drown?
Teachers are under trees imparting knowledge to our future leaders. Did GES protect the interest of the teachers that anyone can pass around and harm the teachers and the students?
The betterment of our education system depends on you and I, let’s rise to uplift ourselves from GES slavery.
We the teachers are on the ground and know all the problems we are facing. If we come together to talk about it, the better for us. Ghana’s education system is bleeding.
Arise, teachers, arise, teachers, arise!!!!
Let every teacher support the #FixGES agenda.
