The Coalition of Concerned Teachers says government breached the collective bargaining agreement it has with the Teacher Unions when it changed the basic school academic calendar from a trimester to a semester.
The Director General of the Ghana Education Service Prof Kwasi Opoku Amankwa announced the revision of the academic calendar at a press conference after questions about the resumption date of all public basic schools.
The new direction means the academic year of public basic schools would be split into two semesters.
This means students would have to spend 20 weeks or more in school whenever school is in session.
Speaking to Sena Nombo on the Gold Power Drive, Director of Communications at CCT-Gh Addokwei Awuley Quaye said the GES acted in breach of their collective bargaining agreement by changing the academic calendar without consulting them.
He said the GES needs to withdraw the calendar and consult them.
