TTAG Directs Teacher Trainees In Colleges Of Education To Boycott Semester Examinations
The Leadership of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana has directed all teacher trainees across the 46 Public Colleges of Education to boycott both Mid-Semester or End of Semester Examinations organized by the mentoring universities.
This directive by TTAG has been necessary due to the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana’s strike being undertaken by tutors over poor conditions of service.
Calls by TTAG are based on this ;
Due to the law of the colleges, if anyone (in
this case, students) is absent from class for 21 days, they are not permitted to write exams. As a result, calls for the closure of schools have increased so that academic work can begin again next year.
Exams cannot take place in this instance because students have missed three weeks’ worth of teacher interaction time owing to the strike. The Princof plans to administer tests devoid of teaching staff in conjunction with a few of its affiliated universities.
