Readers would recall that the Ghana Education Service asked Heads of Public Basic Schools to prepare and submit Performance Agreement Contracts a few months ago. These ( Performance Contract) included budget for the 2021 academic year and beyond.
As at the time of signing the contract, Heads of Public Basic schools were told to prepare a budget which will see the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service paying eight Ghana Cedis, fifty pesewas ( GhC 8.50) per child.
However, our close sources at some Districts and Municipalities in the Ashanti Region revealed that schools have been credited with flat amounts. That is, the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service did not consider the GhC 8.50 as promised.
Each Primary and Junior High School was given five hundred and seven Ghana Cedis ( GhC 507) and two hundred and sixty-eight Ghana Cedis ( GhC 268) respectively.
Some Headteachers are said to be angered by this latest development as they ( Headteachers) feel that amounts paid to their respective schools are woefully inadequate to run the school effectively.
Heads of Public Basic Schools are also in limbo as to whether to spend according to the performance contract or not.
