Reports indicate that Arabic instructors in the three English and Arabic schools in the Bimbilla town are angry with the Nanumba North District Education Directorate.
According to an eye witness, the Arabic instructors numbering about 20 on Friday May 23 2014 staged a peaceful protest through the principal streets of Bimbilla.
This was to drum home their dissatisfaction against the GES directorate’s order to reduce the number of instructors in the various schools to only one.
This, according to the demonstrators, was not only a callous move by the government but also a scheme to fight against Arabic education in the district.
As an indication to further make known their frustrations, all teachers on government payroll in the three English and Arabic schools were drove away.
A meeting between the disgruntled Arabic instructors and the District Director of Education ended inconclusively.
Meanwhile, the District Chief Executive, Hon. Alhaji Mohammed Abass was not available when the protesters called at his office.
For now, it’s not clear what the authorities will do. What can be reported is that parents are concerned but remain hopeful that this issue would be resolved without delay.
