A group calling itself Coalition of Concern Private School Teachers Ghana (COPSTEG) says, it is disappointed in the President for failure to factor teachers in the period a lockdown to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
In a release, leadership for the group said, government has continuously ignored the plight of private school teachers in its policy intervention and has done same in this season of the lockdown.
According to the release, COPSTEG is saddened by the development although it considers the lockdown directive a crucial.
“But one thing the government or the President failed to ask is how are these teachers going to survive since our major source of income is the small salary we receive and this salary also come from the small school and the feeding fee our employers take from the Parents.”
It is therefore calling on government to do the needful.
