Scores of teachers on Monday, July 12, 2021, massed up at the Ministry of Education to protest the purported resit of promotional exams.
The teachers are demanding reasons from the government on why candidates who were earlier notified to bring documents for verification following their success in the exams were later informed that they had failed.
They say they had previously petitioned the Ministry over the matter.
“If you have asked us to bring our documents for further documentation, I don’t see the reason why within 24 hours, you tell us that we have failed,” one of the disgruntled teachers said to Citi News.
According to her, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) is asking the affected teachers to resit the exam.
“With what we are hearing, our GNAT union is asking us to go and resit In August, which we don’t understand. We just want to let them know that we are not going to write in August,” one of the teachers said.
