Food shortage To Hit Colleges of Education Soon, Full Details
The National President of the Teacher Trainees Association (TTAG), Jonathan Dzunu on Citi News today July 26, 2022, aired that the inability of the government to clear the 7 months allowance debt of Teacher Trainees is causing more harm to their academic work.
In May 2022, the Principals of Colleges of Education stood on their feet and raised similar concerns after the failure of the government in responding to their due call.
Food shortage To Hit Colleges of Education
Speaking on the radio, he said “Trainee teachers across the country may in the coming days have to find alternative ways of feeding themselves as the government has failed to pay their feeding grants and allowance for the past seven months.”
Previously, Mr. Jonathan Dzunu made it clear that the government is owing Teacher Trainees a total of 7 months’ allowance in arrears.
Due to the government’s inability to pay the due arrears, the 46 accredited Colleges of Education in the country are finding it very difficult to finance the feeding aspect of them.
“According to the teacher trainees, the government has not paid their allowances for the 2021/2022 academic years, rendering their principals incapacitated.”
