The Parliament of Ghana Thursday, December 16, 2020, after thorough successfully passed the Pre-tertiary Education Bill, the Manhyia South Member of Parliament, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said.
The immediate past Education Minister disclosed this in an interview with the Accra-based Asaase Radio 99.5 monitored by Educationweb.com.gh.
The Pre-tertiary Education Bill attempts to decentralize basic education by fusing the management of basic education/DEOs under District Assemblies (DA) while transferring management and operational functions to the Central Administrative Department of DA, leaving DEOs to concentrate on the core business of teaching and learning.
This is aimed at strengthening participation, accountability and efficiency. As the Bill has been passed, teachers will be recruited at the district level.
