Operation Feed Yourself To Hit Colleges Of Education
Teacher Trainees in colleges of education across the country will feed themselves soon, PRINCOF has announced.
The Leadership of the National Conference Of Principals of Colleges Of Education has announced that teacher trainees will start feeding themselves soon due to the inability of the government to meet their demands.
National Conference Of Principals of Colleges Of Education in a press release dated 31st October 2022 stated that approval is being sought to ask student teachers to fend for themselves starting from 7th November 2022.
REQUEST FOR PERMISSION TO ASK STUDENTS IN COLLEGES OF EDUCATION TO FEND FOR
THEMSELVES I write on behalf of the Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education (PRINCOF), to seek your approval for Principals to ask students to fend for themselves effective Monday, November 7, 2022. Principals of Colleges of Education have been trying very hard to feed trainee teachers in recent times as a result of current market trends, Prices of all food items have shot up astronomically, and food suppliers have refused to supply any food items to Colleges because of the indebtedness of Colleges to these suppliers. A request for an upward review of the feeding grant paid to Principals has not been approved, and it has therefore become increasingly difficult for Principals to continue to provide three meals a day to students at Six Cedis, Fifty Pesewas (C6.50). In light of the above, It is the wish of PRINCOF to be permitted to ask students to start fending for themselves. This is to ensure that the already stretched academic year is not disrupted. Counting very much on your approval.
