COVID-19 has caused a lot,not only on national developmental projects,but also on the academic processes in schools.
After an almost ten-month hiatus from classes, the initial joy of going back to school for many students in Ghana has since turned into a nightmare as the far-reaching impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has put over 222 private schools out of business as economic challenges led many proprietors to convert their facilities into residential apartments, hostels, and guest houses - leaving over 40,000 students and 3,496 teachers in academic limbo.
