The Daily Graphic congratulates all teachers, urging them to continue to give off their best as posterity will not only praise but reward them adequately. Yesterday (October 5), was marked globally as World Teachers Day and locally as National Teachers Day to place the spot light on the invaluable service that teachers render to the society. The country celebrated the rebranded National Teacher’s Award which is now Ghana Teacher Prize with awards to deserving teachers and non-teaching staff who excelled in the past year in their various fields and imparted the lives of school children and students. The paper lauds the various government that has sustained the award scheme over the years since it was instituted in 1995 to rekindle interest in the teaching profession and also boost the falling morale of teachers in the country. While congratulating teachers, the paper urges government to clear all outstanding arrears owed teachers by way of salaries and allowances to enable them to put in their best.
