The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed Heads of public Kindagarten, Primary,  Junior and Senior High Schools to mobilise their managment teams to ensure the safety and well-being of all students in schools following strike action declared by three teacher unions.

Three Teacher Unions namely: Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) on Wednesday March 20, 2024 declared strike action over the delay in negotiations of their Conditions of Service.

The GES in a statement signed by the Head, Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo ”advised parents to remain calm and be assured that Management is closely monitoring the situation and will advise on the way forward accordingly.”

”Regional and District Directors have further been directed to ensure that Heads keep schools opened and closely supervise all children who report to school pending further directives from Management of GES,” the statement added.
