Blame teachers for increasing corruption in Ghana – UEW Lecturer

Corruption in education threatens the well-being of society because it erodes social trust and worsens inequality. It sabotages development by undermining the formation of educated, competent, and ethical individuals for future leadership and the labour force.

It is also believed by all that corruption on the part of African leaders, Ghana in particular has to do with the greediness, selfishness and the personal interest of our leaders. Meanwhile, a lecturer at the University of Education Winneba (UEW), Mr. Samuel Ziggah, has asked Ghanaians to partly blame teachers instead for the corruption in our public space and life.

The psychologist believes that some teachers have contributed to the corruption, mismanagement on the part of leaders we have had in the past and today.

Unveiling his reasons to back his opinion, the lecturer said an ineffective teacher is a dangerous person to society. Such teachers and their effect may not be seen immediately but in several years and students who go through their hands become a threat to the development of the country.

According to him, teaching is not preaching in a church for anybody at all to join.

“We need competent, qualified and skilled persons as teachers to help produce disciplined, qualified and skilled people for the job market. The inefficiencies of some teachers could affect every aspect of our economic life”,he added.

In an example, he said if an accounting student does not get quality teaching from a qualified teacher, that student could grow to become an incompetent professional who could create a serious economic crisis for an organisation.
