In an interview, Prof Opoku Amankwa emphasized that the payroll, not the Education Management Information Service, should be used to determine the number of instructors that left the service (EMIS).

He went on to clarify that using the EMIS to determine the number of instructors leaving the teaching service is misleading since total attrition comprises vacation, resignation, obligatory retirement, termination of appointment, and dismissal.
