- Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that 10 teachers have been paid for 2 years for no work done
- According to sources, there is no building in which to teach children in the village
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the Ghana Education Service (GES) posted 10 teachers to the Northern Region even though there is no school building.
According to a report by GHIssues.com, the village to which they were posted, Kochim, is in the Kumbungu district of the region.
For two years, the teachers have been riding from their base in Tamale on motorbikes, only to sit idly behind a thatch structure erected by parents in the community.
This, according to sources, is an attempt to eradicate disinterest in education among the children in the village.
The population of the village is estimated to be 700, and they are alleged to be living without basic amenities such as electricity, water, good roads and others.
The district education director, Hajia Abiba Saaka answering questions about the education service policy of posting teachers, said her outfit was not in charge of provision of infrastructure.
She revealed that the directorate would cut down the number of the teachers in the community during next academic session if the situation remains unchanged.
