Institute for Education Studies calls on government to digitally empower teachers

The Institute for Education Studies (IFEST) is calling on the government to make digital devices meant for teaching easily accessible for teachers in Ghana to boost teaching and learning in the country.

The Executive Director for IFEST, Peter Anti made the appeal as the world celebrates World Teachers’ Day Yesterday, October 5, 2020.

This year’s World Teachers Day celebration is under the theme: Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”.

“Teachers will have to be innovative in the delivery of education to children. We are appealing to the relevant stakeholders especially the government to support teachers. Especially at this time when online education is becoming the new normal, we are hoping that the government will provide teachers with digital devices to improve the delivery of education in the country,” Peter Anti urged.

Education in Ghana appears more theoretical and not practical, and this has to do with unavailable teaching and learning materials in the schools especially those situated outside the capital town of Ghana.

Peter Anti also stressed on the need to appreciate teachers for the key role they play in society.

“Teachers deserve commendation for their undeniable impact in society,” he said.
