Former President Mahama assure teachers of brighter future

Former Presi­dent John Dramani Mahama has assured teachers across the nation of a brighter future under his next administration.

In a statement released in Accra yesterday to commemorate this year’s World Teachers Day, the NDC flagbearer emphasised the importance of enhancing teaching and learning for Gha­na’s continued progress towards prosperity.

He underscored the pivotal role that teachers play in the country’s education system and stressed the necessity of pro­viding them with the requisite resources, tools, support, and training to empower them to deliver high-quality education to Ghana’s youth.

“Improving teaching and learning must be a top priority for Ghana as we forge ahead towards a more prosperous future. Teachers are the backbone of our education system, and we must provide them with the resources, tools, support, and training to enable them to de­liver good quality education to our children,” he said.

To this end, he said the Nation­al Democratic Congress (NDC) remained committed to investing in teacher education and professional development programmes.”

The former president said the NDC understood that well-trained and motivated teachers were the key to unlocking the full potential of students for which reason they aim to equip teachers with the necessary tools and techniques to adapt to the evolving needs of our education system.

“We also recognise the im­portance of addressing teachers’ challenges, including the need for better remuneration and improved working conditions. Our pledge to Ghanaian teachers, on page 69 of our People’s Manifesto of 2020, remains true today. Education is a fundamental right, and every child in Ghana deserves equal access to quality education,” he said.

“My administration will strengthen the implementation of the free SHS policy by investing in infrastructure, expanding access to educational resources, and improv­ing the overall learning environ­ment in our Senior High Schools,” he stated.
