450,000 Free Student Tablets ready for Distribution Next Week – Dr Yaw Adutwum

The Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has announced that the government is considering paying transfer grants to teachers who are willing to be posted to deprived communities across the country.

This initiative aims to address the teacher-student ratio in the country and encourage educators to work in underserved areas of the country.

Speaking at the National Teacher’s Day celebration held in Takoradi, Mr Adutwum emphasised the government’s commitment to ensuring an adequate number of teachers in all regions.

He stated that if necessary, transfer grants would be provided to incentivise teachers to take up positions in areas that need them the most.

This move aims to dispel the notion of a teacher shortage in Ghana, he stressed.

Mr Adutwum highlighted that Ghana has the capacity to recruit 100,000 teachers whenever needed.

He acknowledged the crucial role teachers play in shaping the nation’s future.

This announcement comes in response to reports of Ghanaian teachers seeking employment opportunities abroad, particularly in the UK.
