Posterity Will Judge You – Private School Teachers To Nana Addo



The Coalition of Private School Teachers, Ghana (CPTS-Ghana) has accused President Akufo-Addo’s government of not caring about their livelihoods as well as the right to education of the Ghanaian child.

Thier comments come in response to news from the President Akufo-Addo in his 16th address on the Covid-19 pandemic, that the remainder of the academic year for all nursery, KG, primary, and JHS 1 and SHS 1 students has been rescheduled to January, 2021.

“We reject the reasons for denying the Ghanaian children their constitutional rights to education for almost one year and the right of private school teachers to work to earn decent livelihoods”, the CCPTS-Ghana said in response to the President’s announcements.

The coalition disagreed with the President’s assertion that schools are unsafe for children, when Ghana’s active cases at the time of the President’s last address was less than 1200 and public places including drinking spots, market places, churches etc. were reopened.

They also bemoaned the silence of major stakeholders such as political parties, opinion leaders, the media, as well as civil society organizations concerning their plight and that of the Ghanaian child.

“The silence of all political parties, religious leaders, the media, civil society organizations etc. to this issue is a clear attestation to the fact that Ghana as a country does not prioritize the education of our children and if indeed it is true that we reap what we sow, then posterity will be a better judge,” they said.
