VICTIMS OF NON- UPGRADED IN- SERVICE GRADUATE TEACHERS

A humble appeal to the president of the republic of Ghana to upgrade us to principal superintendent

It is with a heavy heart that we write this, and hope fervently that it reaches you as early as possible.

We are a group of teachers, numbering over four thousand (4000) in the entire country. Most of us completed various colleges of education in 2013. We have also completed our top- up degree program through sandwich and or distance learning, between 2016 and 2018, and we were due for upgrading to the principal superintendent rank in 2019.

We have however been denied of upgrading, with excuses which are difficult for even intellectuals to make meaning out of them.

We have been to the various regional education services across the country, as well as the GES Headquarters on many occasions, only to be told one story after another. We have reported this to our teacher unions and every institutions we thought could be of assistance to us, but all to no avail.

Many of us teach in very deprived areas in the country, and took loans to further our education. We feel very neglected, unduly victimized and cheated which has caused us both emotionally and financially traumatized.

It hurts us to know that some of our colleagues in other regions who are on the same level as we are have been upgraded whiles we remain un-upgraded . It hurt us so much to know that teachers who have recently completed colleges of education are been place on the principal superintendent  rank when we who were supposed to be on that same rank about fifteen mouth ago, still remain un-upgraded.

We know his excellency that you would resolve our plight, and cause the appropriate authorities  to upgrade us accordingly, to put smiles back on our faces.

Thank you

Signed:

Victims of un-upgraded teachers
