Demoted head teacher asked to go to court 10/9/2007
The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has urged Mad. Helen Abrokwa, Headteacher of Padmore Street Primary School in Tema to seek redress in the courts if she feels the Ghana Education Service has wronged her.

Speaking to Joy News, Ms. Hannah Bossman, the Acting Commissioner of the CHRAJ said if any staff of the GES feels that there is a breach of their contract they can make a complaint to the Labour Commission or the CHRAJ, after they have exhausted all available procedure.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has in recent times descended heavily on its staff who have spoken to the media.

One of the recent victims is Mad Helen Abrokwa a teacher for over 30 years who was the Head teacher of Padmore Street Primary School in Tema. She has been demoted by the GES for speaking to the media.

According to the CHRAJ, she could seek redress in the courts.

Mad. Abrokwa is been sanctioned by the Ghana Education Service for speaking frankly to Joy News about enrolment figures in the school. She apparently gave figures that were lower than what her employers expected. Her views were that enrolment figures were not as high as expected.

Mad. Abrokwa was not only demoted after she spoke to the media, she was also posted to a different school.

She has subsequently suffered a shock as a result and is receiving treatment at the Tema General Hospital.

It will be recalled that a few weeks ago, the GES nearly axed the Greater Accra Regional Director of Education, Mr. James Okaija Dinsey for speaking to the media. He was issued with a strongly worded memo after he told journalists that he has not received the syllabi for the take off of the new education reform.

CHRAJ, expressed concern about the intolerance of the GES and asked the victimized to go to court and seek redress if they feel there is any wrong doing.
