The Ghana Education Service has said the reason why there was a mass failure in the teachers promotional aptitude which was recently held was due to technological challenges.
Some teacher unions comprising the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers – Ghana threatened to go on strike over the results.
The unions demanded explanations in a statement on why candidates who were earlier notified of their success in the exams were later informed that they had failed.
It said “We take exception to how the results were released to our members. The system was opened for results to be checked, those who were successful were congratulated, those who failed received their corresponding messages. Others were asked to submit documents to HR at the GES headquarters for verification. Unfortunately, those who were asked to submit their documents for verification were subsequently told they were part of those who failed. The teacher unions are not happy with this development since it compromises the sanctity and integrity of the aptitude test and the results.”
Speaking to the media, the Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service in charge of management services, Anthony Boateng said “It came to our attention that in uploading the results, there had been a problem and this is very unfortunate. ”
