Teachers Are Fined Ghc10 When They Fail To Write Lesson Notes – Teacher Kwadwo Reveals



A famous Ghanaian Youtuber and comedian, who goes by the name Michael Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as  ‘Teacher Kwadwo’ has alleged that some Circuit Supervisors (CS) have been estorting GHC5 and GHC10 bribes from teachers who fail to write their lesson notes.
The Circuit Supervisors who are currently called School Improvement Support Officer (SISO) under the Ghana Education Service, according to Teacher Kwadwo, have been doing this as a way of embezzling money into their pockets other than checking on the performance of teachers.
He further revealed that Circuit Supervisors who are now referred to as CISOs and are in charge of ensuring that teachers have an up to date lesson notes, resort to extorting meager amounts of ten cedis (GHC 10) and in some cases GHC 5 from teachers over their inability to write down their lesson notes and this is business for some of them.
Teacher Kwadwo, while speaking on the Kokoase segment of Angel Morning Show on Tuesday stated emphatically that, some teachers have become extremely ‘lazy’ and reluctant to write down lesson notes’ so they rather prefer that they are made to type these notes instead.
SISOs are obligated to coordinate schools and the district education offices by way of visiting these schools to inspect teachers lesson notes appropriately.
They are obliged to also ensure that quality standard by supervising, inspecting and evaluating the operation of schools is efficiently carried out.
He further blamed “bad teachers” whose recalcitrant attitude towards the profession is nothing to write home about for this act of corruption, insisting that this would stop if teachers are made to type their lesson notes instead of putting them on paper.
Teacher Kwadwo was sacked after he was subjected to disciplinary sanctions for absenting himself from the classroom for more than 50 working days.
