School Placement: Report bribery allegations to Ghana Education Service

Placement of Students into Senior High Schools in the country has always been tagged with bribery and corruption. 

Some parents have alleged that, some ICT experts at the Free Senior High School Secretariat have taken money from them to effect changes in the school placement.

Some parents have alleged to have paid three(3000) thousand to six thousand(6000) Ghana cedis for their children school placement to be changed.

The government has made secondary school education free for all Ghanaian students to be able pass through the secondary school system.

These bribery allegations at the secretariat are caused by some of the parents who refused placement for their children and are ready to pay to the IT staff at the secretariat to change the school for them.

Parents are advised to report all claims of bribery and corruption to the Regional offices and the GES Headquarters with evidence, this will facilitate investigations and culprits will be brought to book.

Parents paying three thousand to five thousand Ghana cedis for school placement is just like paying school fees.

These allegations of bribery and corruption keep on recycling in every academic year when Senior High Schools admissions are opened, there have not been any report from Ghana Education Service on these issues. Is the management of Ghana Education Service investigating these claims? Why should they allow few individuals at the Secretariat to extort money from parents. 

These bribery allegations started from 2017 since the introduction of the free Senior High School policy.

Ghanaians have called on Dr. Osei Adutwum to investigate these allegations and put a stop to the recurring bribery scandals at the Free Senior High School Secretariat.

The cost of Secondary School education is becoming very expensive in the free Senior High School policy. Parents paying bribes to get their children placed in schools and buying a whole lot of items on the school prospectus is a burden on some of the parents.

Government should improve one Senior High School in each of the sixteen regions in the country into a model school to reduce the pressure on the so called category A Schools.
