Additionally, low salaries may discourage talented individuals from pursuing careers in education, which can further exacerbate issues within the education system. Addressing the issue of low teacher pay is crucial for ensuring that the education sector attracts and retains skilled and dedicated professionals who can contribute to the development of Ghana.
