GNAT to resist transfer of "chalk" headmistress

the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has vowed to resist any attempt by the government to transfer or punish Juliana Oppong, the head teacher of Kukurantumi Presbyterian Primary School.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association, Peter Tetteh Korda, said the association would not sit back and watch the innocent woman be punished or transferred for no wrong done.
He said it was the head teacher’s right to ask for materials that would improve teaching and learning in the school.
“GNAT will not sit aloof…we will resist any attempt to transfer or punish the Head teacher because she hasn’t done anything wrong,” he warned.
His threat is in reaction to reports that the Regional Education Directorate has been directed by the Ghana Education Service (GES) to issue a transfer letter to Mrs Juliana Oppong.
The report came after the wife of the Vice President Matilda Amissah-Arthur decided to “blow off some steam” when the headmistress innocently asked for some chalk.
The Second Lady flew into a rage saying they would not get chalk today, tomorrow or forever.
Though she later apologized for her action, there are reports that the head teacher of Kukurantumi Presby Primary School is on the verge of losing her job for asking for a favor from Mrs Amissah-Arthur.
