Psychologist should be deployed to the various institutions to counsel students when Schools resumes

Covid-19 has been with Ghanaians for about 9months now and students were asked to go home to curb the spread of the virus. This led to the postponement of WASSCE that was supposed to be written April/May to August/September. Final years were asked to return to Schools in July for six weeks revision and use five weeks to write their exams. They completed successfully without spike in number of active cases though some schools recorded cases of covid-19. The second years were also asked to do same and they just vacated this X'mas season.

Now, the education ministry has come out with a proposed date for reopening of schools. The executive director of African Education Watch suggest that the government deploys psychologist to the various schools to counsel them and let them feel welcome. Their long stay in the villages would have affected them negatively and their minds need to cleared off. Some may feel that education is not important because of some works he/she did during their stay and was able to make money such as illegal mining known as galasey. This counselling would be done through verbal communication.

Psychological disturbances in the brain may affect teaching and learning in school and hence the need to be counseled

African Education Watch also urges that PPEs should be Provided prior the reopening of schools.
