Nana Michey said “Yes, we’ve entered the new year with your mean attitude towards your own employees (teachers) no upgrading, no promotion, no consultation. All you think about is inflicting pain on the Ghanaian teacher. No text books for our little brothers and sisters”

As teachers the only happiness we seek is to see textbooks for our pupils as well as better harmonious learning environment for them. Just see to it that those are done especially the textbooks.
