Bono Region: Over 200 teachers quit this year, says regional director of education

The Bono Region‘s education system is facing a potential crisis as close to 200 teachers have left the region in search of better opportunities, according to Gabriel Antwi, the regional director of education.

While the immediate impact on classrooms may not be evident, Antwi said the trend could severely affect teaching and learning in the region.

Speaking on the Asaase News’s 12 O’clock Report, the regional director of education said, “A lot of our teachers are going out to seek for greener pastures. Within this year, we are counting close to 200 teachers who have left the system within the region.

“We have not actually felt the impact but if the trend continues like that, it is going to affect teaching and learning,” Antwi added.

The Bono Region boasts a strong track record in academic performance, particularly at the senior high school level. Schools like St. James Seminary Senior High School have consistently ranked among the best in Ghana and West Africa for the past three years, with top-performing students at the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

“We are doing very well in terms of examinations at the basic and senior high schools. St. James, for instance for the past three years has consistently been awarded as the best senior high school [in] West Africa; [in] Ghana, they are always the best school. They always present the best student at WASSCE and so it’s an achievement for the region,” the Bono regional director of education stated.
