The Senior High Schools (SHS) classification in Ghana should be reviewed, according to the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT).
The current difficulty in securing a placement is, in the opinion of the teacher union, brought on by the categorization of schools.
Currently, Senior High Schools in Ghana are categorized according to their academic performance, with grades ranging from A to D.
GNAT, on the other hand, thinks that the categorization needs to be changed to avoid problems.
If a school is categorized as A, B, or C, it gives the impression that the C schools are not good, so I believe we should eliminate the grades A, B, C, and D.
At the GNAT resolution center in Accra, the Free SHS Secretariat has revealed that it has resolved 99 percent of school placement issues.
Following the release of the schools for SHS 1 students, the secretariat established resolution centers all over the country to address unresolved issues.
Since then, some students have brought no placement, school change, residential status, and gender issues to the attention of the secretariat.
The Deputy Coordinator of the Free SHS secretariat, Nana Afrah Sika Mensah, provided an update on progress and stated that the resolution centers will be open for six weeks so that all concerns can be addressed.
