The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) says its members will not work on weekends to support the free Senior High School (SHS) double track system.

According to NAGRAT, although it supports the system, it will not be right for its members to work those extra hours because it is against the Labour law.

In their opinion, if the government insists on implementing the double track system, then probably recruits of the Nation Builders Corp (NABCo) will be required to take upon themselves those roles.

The General Secretary of NAGRAT, Mr. Samuel Frank Dadzie, made this known at a Daily Graphic/Star Ghana dialogue on Educational Policy in Ghana Wednesday.

Speaking on the theme “Unpacking the Double Track System: Implications for Sustainable Financing and Prospects for Educational Quality in Ghana,” Mr Samuel Frank Dadzie questioned the kind of free senior high school (SHS) that the country wants to achieve with the introduction of the double track system.

“…in putting so much stress on the teacher, let’s also think of quality. What kind of free SHS do we want?” he asked.

Meanwhile, a deputy Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has said, four personnel from the Nation Builders Corp (NABCo) will be attached to each school under the double track system.
