The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) has uncovered that, following the deficiency of food in senior high schools (SHS), understudies are currently turning to bargain exchange.
There has been an issue of food deficiency in some SHSs in the country because of the public authority's inability to pay the organization liable for providing food to the schools.
As of late, a letter from the Upper West Chairman of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools to the Regional Director of Education expressed that because of the food deficiency, in the event that administration can't supply them food by July 15, 2022, guardians and gatekeepers would be approached to help their wards or, more than likely, they will close down the schools since they won't have food to take care of the understudies.
An assertion, endorsed by the National Chairman of the Education Campaign Coalition, Joseph Atsu Hamodzi, expressed that their Regional Executives directed examinations in seven districts-Ashanti, Greater Accra, Eastern, Western, Bono, and Volta-which affirmed comparative circumstances.
"For instance, guardians are being approached to offer monetary help to their kids to oversee themselves because of the detailed food lack in certain schools," Mr. Hamodzi said in his explanation.
The Chairman of the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition expressed once more that the deficiency of food has prompted understudies to fall back on some type of bargain exchanging.
"A few understudies, who talked in the state of namelessness, said that they have just a single dinner daily and a few schools. Dried fish is traded for powdered fish and little amounts are utilized to plan stew and soup for the understudies, which is making it challenging for the understudies to focus," he regretted.
The Non-Governmental Organization, which centers around issues relating to instruction, said the schools are confronted with food deficiencies since government has neglected to pay the National Buffer Stock Company Limited so they are begging the public authorities to pay any cash owed the Buffer Stock Company for them to supply the schools.
The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition made sense of again that the arrival of feed awards to the special schools has not been normal and hence approached the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service to guarantee the opportune arrival of taking care of awards to the special schools for the successful running of the schools.
