The deplorable roads, lack of potable water, poor buildings and inadequate facilities in underserved communities make it difficult for teaching and learning. Some teachers are devoid of the odds to teach students for a better future.
The government has been drawn attention to the teachers teaching in rural communities. Akando, MP for Juaboso constituency has called for teachers recognition.
The Member of Parliament for Sefwi Juaboso constituency, Kwabena Mintah Akando, has said that teachers in underserved communities providing humongous service for students in terms of education must not be forgotten.
The deplorable roads linking to the community, poor buildings, telecommunication network challenges, inadequate school facilities, accommodation challenge, electricity problem and other challenges they face, they deserve a better recognition from the government.
Adding that, for the country to experience unprecedented development, teachers can’t be excluded. He said it is believed that the government is not being fair to the manner of treatment for teachers in underserved communities.
However, Akando has called on the government to take good care of teachers for them to give their best. He said it is a joke if the government switch off teachers from their development plans.
Again, he has called for a national policy for teachers in rural areas. Also, he promised to sponsor teachers in underserved communities who wish to further their education and an award for best performing teachers in the Juaboso district.
He made this comment during the celebration of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) 6th quadrennial districts conference at Sefwi Juaboso.
