The Ghana education service has released a letter informing all headmasters that, they should not charge any levy in any form on the final year SHS students. According to GES, there are several complaints indicating that some school authorities are levying final year students PTA dues and other charges.
Management of GES wants to make it clear that, no school authority or headmaster should charge such fees on the students. The continued by saying that, if any student commit an offense by damaging any school property, the school can surcharge that student only using approval from the regional directors to determine the rate to charge.
Apart from this, any headmaster or authority who charges any fees will be sanctioned.
This comes after the final year students complete their last WASSCE exams pending results from West Africa Examination Council.
The letter was signed by the director general for the Ghana Education service.
The free senior high school education covers all expenses to be incurred in school. The government has cautioned institutions who still charge students for some expenses.
