Parliament Wants Education Ministry To Allow First-Year SHS Students To Report In January 2024

 

 

It has been requested that the Ministry of Education reevaluate its decision to permit senior high school (SHS) first-year students to report on Monday, December 4, 2023.

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban S. K. Bagbin, has proposed that the reopening date be shifted to the first week of January to allow both parents and teachers to prepare adequately.

The Speaker has invited the Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, to appear before the House on Monday, December 4 to brief the House on the reopening date and other matters.

The move follows a statement by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Akatsi North and Ranking Member on Education, Peter Kwasi Nortsu-Kotoe, on the apparent rush to allow the students to go to school on Monday.

The MPs, all from the minority side expressed concern on the challenges that parents would have to go through between Thursday and Sunday to get their children ready to go to school on Monday.

The MPs said it was incomprehensible for school placement to be released just two days ago and rush students to report on Monday.

The MPs said they have received calls from constituents for support and even to effect changes in their placement.

The MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, was emphatic that he has received calls from teachers expressing fatigue and asked that some time be given to them to rest.
