Education Director cautions teachers against making unfavourable remarks

Lawrence Dzah, the director of education for the Akuapem North Municipality, has tasked instructors with promoting the field they have selected.

He claimed that criticising teachers in public tends to give the profession a terrible reputation.

The comments were given by Mr. Dzah at the Presbyterian College of Education’s 15th matriculation ceremony at Akropong-Akuapem.

341 new students, including those with special needs, were admitted during the event with the topic “Attaining excellence in modern teacher education: The responsibility of the pre-service teacher”.

The fact that two of the new students are minors and siblings—Mawuli Dieudonne Tasiame, 16, who is studying science and information, communication, and technology (ICT), and Michael Blair Tasiame, who is studying mathematics—is also noteworthy.

In the figure, 50% of the participants were female and 49% were male.

The education director claimed that instructors’ frequent critical remarks damaged the reputation of the field and had a detrimental impact on teachers.

Mr. Dzah thus requested that educators refrain from using such derogatory language.

Negative Language

In order to make money, put food on the table, and take care of their families, instructors sometimes speak negatively about the job they have chosen, Mr. Dzah reminded the new students.

Ordination by God

In order to be able to manage the pupils who would be entrusted to their care, Mr. Dzah stated that teachers must study hard and graduate with success because the teaching profession has been ordained by God. It takes a lot of work to become a teacher, according to the college’s principal, Rev. Dr. Nicholas Apreh Siaw, therefore students shouldn’t take any time off from their studies in order to reach their long-term objectives.

Excellent Academic Performance

In order to graduate with good grades and acquire all the necessary abilities for a professional teacher, Mr. Siaw said, “You have no choice but to study well.” The college stands for excellence.

He gave the pupils the reassurance that everything had been done to support them while they were on campus.

Adoptive And Innovative

In order to manage the students, they would be teaching, the new students were urged to be creative, imaginative, and adaptable by the guest speaker, Rev. Ebenezer Acheampong Asiedu, Chairperson of the Akuapem Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana.

He believed that because technology was now standard practise, the new pupils should be ethically upright as well as technologically savvy.

As they were attending a presbyterian tertiary institution, Rev. Asiedu advised the new students to instill the presbyterian attitude of humility and discipline in themselves.
