Striking teachers from the Colleges of Education across the country have suspended their two-week-old strike.
According to the teachers, they had to suspend the strike on humanitarian grounds following pleas from students and civil society groups.
The teachers withdrew their services mid-June, citing unjust treatment and their continued placement under the Ghana Education Service.
Speaking to Citi News
, the National President of the Association, Joseph Asamoah stated that the decision to suspend the strike was taken at a meeting on Saturday.
“There are some stakeholders who are impressing on us to at least consider our students to make sure that the academic calendar will not be distorted.”
According to him, they have decided to let the students write their exams so that within the holidays, “we will engage the Ministry and whoever is supposed to do what is expected of us do before the next academic year begins.”
