All public Kindergarten ( KG ) and Primary schools returned from vacation on Monday, 6th September, 2021 to complete the 2021 academic year. Meanwhile, Junior High Schools will also return to full academic work on Monday, 13th September, 2021, after mid semester break.
Reports coming in indicate that, the officials of the National Schools Inspectorate Authoritiy ( NaSIA) would embark on supervision and inspection exercise next week. Beginning from Monday, 13th September, 2021. The exercise would be undertaken in Basic Schools, especially schools and institutions under the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project ( GALOP).
The exercise would assess the level of readiness of the GALOP schools as the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service put things together to disburse the GALOP funds to the schools involved.
Heads of Schools and their teachers should note that the National Schools Inspectorate Authoritiy personnel make unannounced visits. They ( NaSIA) usually inspect all relevant materials and documents ( Administrative, Academic and Financial records) of the schools they visit.
Kitchens and store rooms of Schools with feeding programme would also be inspected ascertain if the school children are fed well under clean and hygienic conditions.
In 2008, the Education Act ( Act 778) established the National Schools Inspectorate Authoritiy to conduct periodic and independent evaluation of Basic and Senior High Schools in the country. This is not limited to public schools, but includes private Pre-tertiary schools and educational institutions.
The Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service implemented the New or Standard based curriculum in 2019. However, the necessary materials and resources like furniture and textbooks have not been made available to the Heads of Schools and their teachers. Hexagonal desks are needed by the KG and lower primary pupils.
Headteachers should cease this opportunity to air some of the challenges that undermine their work as facilitators.
