CAM00057 The Brong Ahafo Regional Teachers and Educational Workers Union of TUC
(Ghana) has held its 11th quadrennial delegates conference in Sunyani
on Friday, July 24, to elect new executives to steer the affairs of
the union for the next 4 years.

The conference was under the theme: Quality Education A Critical Tool
For Development in Brong Ahafo; The Role of Education Worker.

Brong Ahafo Regional Industrial Relations Officer of Tewu, Abeaba
Mathew Abereyiya said the only way government can embrace quality
education as a tool for development is to attend to the needs of
educational workers.

He observed that “quality education is not only building more schools
and not being able to keep the students in school; quality education
is not only about putting up new infrastructures and not able to
maintaining the existing structures, again, quality education is not
only training more teachers and not able to give teachers and
non-teaching staff the needed material to work with.”

According to him, “cost of living is at its highest level but the
salaries that they take as educational workers is nothing to ride home
about.”

He therefore appealed to government to help hire more non-teaching
staff in the educational institutions as the few ones are over
stretched.

Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Hon. Justice Samuel Adjei
assured that, “It is government’s vision to enhance qualitative
education at all levels in Ghana, especially in the Brong Ahafo
Region.”

“Education is aimed at preparing the people for pursuing their visions
and ambitions, for the individual to be able to live a useful life in
the society and contribute towards the social, economic and political
development of the nation, the relevant skills, values, attitude,
knowledge, and competences must lucrative.”

Hon. Justice Adjei stressed that government will continue to make
strenuous efforts by enhancing excellent teaching and learning at all
levels of education in the country.

He added that the role of education workers is not only critical but
absolutely necessary to the channeling out of qualified professionals
to fit into the various sectors of our national economy.
