Ghana Teachers Demonstration Teachers in Ghana are on indefinite strike as they demand that the government pays them the salaries they are owed The teachers - who are members of the National Association of Graduate Teachers of Ghana (NAGRAT) are on indefinite strike in three regions of Ghana - Upper East, Upper West and Greater Accra. This is the continuation of a long-running dispute for teachers in the country - who have been struggling not only for a living wage - but for the meagre wages which they are owed to be paid in a timely fashion or in some cases at all. Indeed things are so bad in Ghana for teachers, that there is a separate organisation called the Unpaid Teachers Association, which represents teachers who qualified in 2010, have been working as teachers and yet have not been paid at all (see previous post). As recently reported on this site, the World Bank has published yet another lengthy report ( which attacks teachers as being one of the main causes of the failure to provide education for children in the Global South. Ghana and its teachers are a typical example of the way teachers are so often treated - unpaid or badly paid and working in conditions, which are all but unimaginable to those of us who teach in OECD countries. Teachersolidarity sends its greetings to the teachers of Ghana as they assert their right to a living wage.Meanwhile the World Bank and some members of their own government treat them with contempt: according to a report in , some politicians mocked them by suggesting that they wait for three years for the money owed to them, despite the fact that the Minister of Education had told the NAGRAT delegates conference: 'We cannot take such legitimate demands from our valued teachers for granted.'
