A release from the management of Ghana Education Service has revealed that lesson notes preparation should be based on agreement between the teacher and his/her supervisor.
This statement has come to light as a response to concerns raised by NAGRAT on its press conference on Thursday, 17th February on lesson note preparation.
The GES in a statement has revealed that, the position of Management on preparation of Lesson Notes by teachers is that Lesson Notes must be prepared and approved. This is being enforced strictly.
The issue, however, has been whether the Lesson Notes should be prepared manually or electronically, especially in the midst of the ‘One-Teacher-One Laptop’ programme.
“At a discussion with the Teacher Unions, the consensus was that for now, the system should be made as flexible as possible. That is, it should be based on agreement between the teacher and his/her supervisor. Thus, where both teacher and the supervisor agree that it should be prepared and submitted electronically, it should be allowed. Where it cannot be transmitted electronically, a print-out of the typed lesson notes should be submitted for vetting and approval.
Where for any valid reason, it cannot be prepared electronically, it should be done manually, based on agreement between the parties”, the release emphasised.
Management wishes to emphasis that the feasibility of phasing out the manual preparation of lesson notes will be discussed at the appropriate time when every teacher has received his/her laptop and trained.
This should not cause any apprehension among any section of staff of the Service.
