Teachers across the country are bracing themselves to welcome the first batch of students for the double track module which begins tomorrow.
The Central Regional Chairman for the National Association of Graduate Teachers Mr. Augustine Kofi Pennin confirmed this to ATL FM NEWS saying teachers have no alternative except to be hopeful and positive of the successful implementation of the policy.
According to Mr. Pennin, it is not right for government officials to pretend and present issues on the controversial double track system as though everything about the implementation is right.
He explained since it is a fresh policy, there are likely to be some challenges especially when all the concerns brought forth by the teachers were not addressed.
“We all want the good of the whole process and this is not the stage for us to complain because government is putting things in place for the process to be rolled out, but it is a collective process which all stakeholders should be involved. We the teachers are ever ready to teach the students and if we encounter any problem as the process we would contact the necessary authority to get issues solved”.
The Regional Chairman assured parents of their wards’ wellbeing under the double track system, calling on them to perform their roles fully as parents or guardians and avoid shirking all responsibilities on government.
‘All teachers are aware of the double track system and we are going to help with it for the nation to develop. There might be some teachers who may be finding some difficulties with the process but we will keep on with the education. I would advise parents to take keen interest in academics and upkeep of their wards and support in their own small way. Also they should take interest in supporting the teachers to help in the development of their wards”.
