A member of the NDC’s manifesto committee Prof. George K.T Oduro says trained teachers under the second coming of his Excellency John Dramani Mahama will enjoy automatic employment without doing national service.
Again, teachers under Mahama as a president will be supported to own their cars and houses ,this he believes will reduce the burden and hardship on teachers.
He said the party is yet to conclude on the implementation strategy to face out the double-track system under the free SHS policy.
According to the former Pro-VC of the Cape Coast University, the party will unveil their roadmap to the implementation of their policy before the December polls.
He reiterated at a Town Hall Meeting held at KNUST campus in Kumasi this afternoon that, their intention to cancel the double-truck system immediately they win power will come to pass.
The party has always maintained the double-track is a hamper on quality of education.
There are many abandoned and uncompleted projects on campuses and with that, we agreed that as a matter of priority, when power is handed to the NDC, we have to deal with that. What we are looking at is completing infrastructure to meet the numbers because the double-track system has had a toll on quality. The implementation strategy is still be discussed and so by December we tell Ghanaians how it is going to be,” he said.
On teacher licensure examination, he stressed: “Before 2017, once you graduate from teacher training, you’ve automatic employment. But now, that has been relaxed for some reason so now when you come out, you’re not guaranteed automatic employment. We are not saying we are abolishing teacher licenses, it is the examination as it is now that we are abolishing. The certification should be pedagogical evidence. The way it is done now, we must review it”.
