The Ghana National Association of Teachers will be meeting the Ghana Education Service today in a meeting which has been explained to be a critical and crucial meeting to decide the future of students.
The decision to either reopen schools or not depends on the outcome of the crucial meeting with the Ghana National Association of Teachers and the Ghana Education Service.
The president of the Ghana National Association of Teachers, Philippa Larsen who revealed the meeting to the 3Fm host of sunrise morning Alfred Ocansey said,"My general secretary will be in that meeting to represent the association. But our position is this: Latter part of last year when the president had announced that schools will reopen in January, the cases had gone drastically down but this time, with the cases going up, the outcome of the meeting will tell what decision should be taken. We should look at class size in various schools and infrastructure to know as to whether all schools should be reopened fully".
According to her, "The meeting backed with data from the Ghana Health Service will inform the president on what decision should be taken. You know that we are all concerned about our safety and protection and so the outcome of the meeting will tell whether schools should reopen in phases. In fact for me, if I have my own way to take a decision I will suggests schools should be opened in phases taken into consideration the rise in the number of cases.
" Like it happened during the examination time where finally the final year students were in schools after that the form 2's were in schools on December 7 when they went on vacation for Christmas, these are the issues we will be looking at".
The president is also to have a meeting with the cabinet on the same reason for which a decision will be taken as to whether schools should reopen or not.
