“How many new beds has Ministry of Education or Ghana Education Service provided”– Kofi Asare asks

On April 6, 2021 the Ghana Education Service (GES) announced that it has postponed the re-opening date of Form 3 students of Senior High School (SHS) to May 5, 2021.

The directive was motivated by some concerns Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) raised regarding insufficient space in various SHSs to accommodate the students (Form 1, 2 and 3) simultaneously. 

However, the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare, has raised cogent questions concerning re-opening of SHS finalists. 

According to him, Ministry of Education (MoE) or GES should provide adequate information on how Form 3 students will be accommodated in school. This is because, some students are already sleeping on the floor despite Form 1and 2 students are currently in school. 

Therefore, sending one track of Form One’s students home won’t be sufficient to accommodate Form 3 students. 

Hence, he asked that, 

“How many new beds has MoE or GES provided since April 5th, and to which schools?”

He wrote this on his Facebook page today.
