Schools do not appear to be closing down given the new trends in the country’s coronavirus pandemic.
After the increase of COVID-19 in Ghana, parents and students started lobbying for school closures, particularly in the numerous secondary schools.
Responding to the appeal, the Chairman of Ghana Education Service said its too early to close classes.
According to him, schools should not be closed or delayed until GES receives the reports from Ghana Health Service.
Further, he said he had my officers in Accra receive reports every day. I’ve read about Covid-19 reports in several colleges.
“To me, it’s too early to claim why we will close colleges. To inform this matter, we rely on the Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Services.
Recall that after the outbreak at Accra Girls Senior High School and several other schools yet to be identified by the public, the President of NAGRAT, A gel Carbonu recently called for school closure.
Following President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo ‘s directive that schools should reopen to final year students to allow them to write their exit exams, SHS and Form Two Gold Track students returned to school on Monday, June 22.
