The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) is asking government to provide each teacher with a laptop and modem.

According to GNAT, these are essential for effective teaching and learning especially during these times of Covid-19 when virtual learning is the order of the day.

“We have suffered for ourselves and we are still doing a lot. It is time for us to be supported by civil society organisations, NGOs and government to possibly have a policy, one teacher, one laptop, one modem,” the Association’s president said.

Mrs Philippa Larsen, speaking at GNAT’s 2020 Stakeholders Forum, called on government to come to the aid of teachers to ensure innovative means of teaching and learning continue.

“I pray that you continue to do more for Ghana to develop so that we will not travel to other countries to do other things that ordinarily you wouldn’t do,” she said.
