Ministry of Education (MoE) has on no occasion asked unemployed qualified Trained Teachers to fall on private schools for employment.
The news item by a portal hitnewsgh.com that the MoE has ignored the 2018 trained teachers is fake.
Highly placed source at the Education Ministry says that the news item could best be described as distraction and nothing else.
According to ghananewsonline.com.gh source, at no point in time had someone in the presence of the Education Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, suggested to the teachers to consider getting engaged by private schools as the website reported.
“The story is a pure mischief which must be disregarded by the teachers and the general public,” the source said.
The source said: “It is instructive to note that the ministry under the hardworking minister is moving to have the teachers who have completed their National Service to be employed in public schools.”
According to the source, the claim by the website that the Licensure Examination by teachers was to deny them posting was totally false and laughable.
“Licensure Examination was basically to improve professional standing and statuses of teachers in the country as it is done in other jurisdictions and nothing else,” the source said.
The source said that the mischief against the minister and ministry as a whole would sway their minds off the move to get the teachers employed in public schools.
