Ghana Education News can confirm that teachers found engaging in immoral conducts with schoolgirls would not be supported by NAGRAT. The president of the National President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Mr Eric Agbe Carbonu made this known at the sixth Quadrennial Eastern Regional delegates conference on the theme: “Confronting the future of education through IT: A clarion call to teachers and managers of education,” at Nkrumah in the Eastern Region last Wednesday.
The teachers found engaging in immoral conducts with little schoolgirls would not be supported message is a timely call. Teachers especially male educators have been found on several occasions to have messed up their professional careers as a result of their inability to control themselves when tempted.

Speaking on the unprofessional conduct of teachers in the area of immorality, Mr. Carbonu said NAGRAT would not support teachers who were found engaging in immoral conducts with their schoolgirls, as the law would take its course with such teachers.
He, therefore, cautioned them to be morally upright and be examples to the schoolchildren, adding that “no matter the age of the girl, a school girl is a school girl.”
The Eastern Regional Chairman, Mr. Awoonor-Yevu, in his report said teachers were working with students/pupils whose entire lives were immersed in the 21st-century media culture.
He said the students/pupils who were today’s digital learners or information technology (IT) learners, needed teachers to teach them, students/pupils, how to use the IT tools to enable them to become media literate in an online collaborative, research-based environment.
