Lambussie DCE expresses concern about the frequent transfer of teachers
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Lambussie District Assembly, Mr Naluri George Gerard, is very concerned about the high number of teachers leaving the district every year to work in other districts.
He believes that many teachers view the district as a "recruitment district" and leave after only one year, instead of serving for the required three to four years.
It is expected that the district will lose around seventy teachers due to the recent transfers being undertaken by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
In an interview with Info Radio, Mr Naluri disclosed that the Assembly plans to investigate who is responsible for releasing the teachers in violation of GES rules.
“The unfortunate thing is that we will even build the capacity of this people and they’ll run away. I’m just getting the information that just the recent transfer they did we’re likely to lose about seventy teachers,” he added.
He added that “as the DCE, I have never asked that they should release any teacher from my district to any other district.”
He said the situation is affecting teaching and learning in the district.
