Mr Kofi Asare has condemned the Management of Ghana Education Service for their poor management of the country’s education sector saying their approach to education planning and management is very disappointing.
The Executive Director of Africa Education Watch comments comes after the GES Tuesday announced it has rescheduled the reopening date for the final year SHS students to report to school to continue academic activities.
A statement issued by the Service copied to Educationweb.com.gh said Form 3 SHS students in single and double track schools will report to school on May 5, 2021, instead of the earlier communicated April 6, 2021 date.
According to the Education Service, the postponement of the SHS 3 students reopening date is to allow schools to reach the targeted 1,080 instructional hours needed for the final year students to complete their syllabus.
But, Mr Kofi Asare in a social media post has said the Ghana Education Service (GES) despite headed by a Professor and assisted by a PhD and a Lawyer in the past three years has failed in the education sector.
“GES is headed by a Prof, assisted by a PhD and a Lawyer, yet in the past three years, it hasn’t managed a single semester’s academic calendar without erratic changes,” Africa Education Watch official stated.
The Educationist furthered that “This Ameoba-Ambulance Service approach to education Planning and Management is very disappointing.”
Meanwhile, the President of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has disclosed the reopening date for the 2021 WASSCE students was postponed to avoid congestion in schools amid covid-19.
