JHS teachers in two regions have yet to get Mate 1 computers – GNAT



The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has refuted allegations that all Junior High School teachers in the country have acquired Mate 1 laptop computers purchased by the government to help in teaching and learning activities.



In a statement obtained by EducationWeb, Thomas Musah, the General Secretary of GNAT, stated that teachers in various public Junior High Schools in the Ashanti and Volta Region will receive their TM1 computers at the proper time.



“With the exception of the Volta and Ashanti Regions, all Junior High School (JHS) teachers in the country have obtained.” “Everyone in JHS who hasn’t gotten it yet will get it,” said the Teachers Association member on Friday.



Musah verified in a social media post that all public Senior High School (SHS) teachers across the nation have gotten their computers, but that instructors in elementary and kindergarten schools have yet to be serviced.



On Friday, December 17, 2021, the first phase of the national distribution of Mate 1 computers to Senior High School teachers around the country came to a conclusion.



The GES Director-General told media last year that the second and third phases of the government teachers’ laptop distribution procedure will begin next year, when the 2022 academic year begins in January.



The Professor stated in a statement communicated to EducationWeb.com.gh that as of December 10, 2021, 80 percent of the 62,000 laptops had been distributed to qualified and eligible Senior High School teachers across the country.



Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa stated that in the second and third stages, both public Junior High and primary school teachers across the country would receive brand new state-of-the-art all-day battery life computers.



“The TM1 is a world-class laptop designed to inspire study and performance.” It comes with a custom-built desktop program that offers electronic learning and teaching information in an easy-to-use electronic format.



This makes studying more enjoyable and allows instructors in both rural and urban locations to have fair access to the educational tools they require. “TM1 is a friend for every student at an excellent value,” a GES official told the media in December 2021.
