The Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) Friday, May 14, 2021, educated more than 200 school proprietors in Ashanti Region on Education Regulatory Bodies Act 1023 at the Kumasi Cultural Center.
According to the Private school’s Council (GNACOPS), the one-day workshop was to offer school proprietors a legal understanding of the implementation of Act 1023; Education Regulatory Bodies Act 1023 passed by Parliament.
Speaking to the media, GNACOPS officials said there is a need for private schools who are partners of education to go through the legal interpretation of the provisions under the Act so as to strengthen their operations.
“The workshop was also a way of giving participants a wholistic understanding on how they can work with the NaSIA and how to also the NTC in terms of teacher professionalism,” a GNACOPS official stated.
Private school owners at the workshop were given hard copies of the Act for them to read through and ask questions on areas they don’t understand.
Asked how others who did not attend the workshop will be educated on the Act, Mr Kwasi Gyetuah said “the knowledge acquired, participants will pass it on to their various district members who are under the council.”
The GNACOPS Executive Director speaking at the one-day workshop said his outfit is committed to bringing sanity into the educational system by providing undiluted information to all private schools in the country.
