Over 700 teachers, including the National President of the Ghana National Association of Teachers on Campus (GNATOC), Storms the Ashanti Regional Ghana Education Service (GES) office.

According to initial reports, a group of teachers who had completed their study leave were originally assigned to various schools in the Ashanti region. However, around 90% of these teachers, particularly those designated for Senior High Schools, experienced significant changes in their assignments.

Some teachers discovered that the Senior High Schools they were initially assigned to had undergone major alterations, while others were unexpectedly reassigned to the Basic School Level.

This sudden reassignment has caused dissatisfaction among the teachers, especially considering that many of them had previously served in underserved areas for a long time and had upgraded their qualifications to teach at the Senior High School level.

Being redirected back to the Basic School Level is seen as a form of punishment. It is worth noting that a recent initiative called SWITCH 1.0, introduced by the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and the University of Cape Coast (UCC), aimed to assist Basic School teachers in transitioning to the Senior High School level upon completion.

In response to the unexpected changes in their assignments, numerous disgruntled teachers gathered in significant numbers at the GES Office in the Ashanti region, seeking explanations.
