The leadership of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) after a thorough review of the public university Bill, 2020 have submitted a 25 paged memorandum to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education for consideration.
The submitted memorandum is to see to it that the administration, governance, and accountability structures of Public universities are equally balanced without interfering with the autonomy and education freedoms of the Public Universities.
This comes after UTAG registered disagreement of the bill arguing that, it would take away academic freedom and the autonomy of public universities under the form of balancing activities.
The government in response to UTAG said it has no intentions of taking over their autonomy and entreated them to pen down their concerns.
In regard to that, the leadership of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has presented the memorandum with the confidence that it will be “given the necessary attention it deserves.” Download Statement here
