Listen to article

Akatsi (V/R), Dec. 6, GNA - Mr Obo Dzileke Gassonu, Akatsi District Secretary of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), has urged the Ghana Education Service to organise sensitisation workshops on the "Theory of Multiple Intelligence" for teachers, circuit supervisors and district directors to help improve education.

He said Howard Gardiner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence had situational implications for education, training and leadership to enable superiors to understand their subordinates as individual personalities and treat them as such to enhance development. Addressing teachers at a series of meetings to discuss labour and professional issues at Akatsi and Ave-Havi at the weekend, Mr Gassonu said failures and dismissals of students for poor academic performance were some key educational problems that the adoption of the theory would help resolve.

He advocated more emphasis on vocational and technical training to enhance the development of the potential of the youth towards nation building.

Mr George Ganyo, District Chairman of the GNAT presented a report on the Second Quadrennial Volta Regional Delegates Conference of the Association held in Ho in August and urged teachers to participate fully in union activities and show commitment and dedication to duty.
