The Ministry of Education has reiterated that it will direct students to return to school at the right time.
This follows calls from some private educational institutions to government to reopen schools for students to begin academic work on-site.
Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education, Vincent Ekow Assafuah, highlighted that there is a need to be dreadful about the decision that will be made in order to forestall any regrettable experience for the country.
“There is a global pandemic, we are cannot keep on doing what we used to do before the pandemic came into being. So we are sensitive about it, we agree that it is a worrisome situation, it is not helping private institutions. But we need to dread cautiously so as not to give any directive that we are going to regret later on as a nation,” he said.
Mr. Assafuah also indicated that the Ministry will consult the President or the Ghana Education Service (GES) on the directive to reopen schools.
“When the time is due and we think that it is right for us to reopen schools, we will give the directive or we will give the suggestions to the President, so that if they also agree to the proposal or suggestions from the Ghana Education Service, then we will thereon also give the directive.” he said.
He further added that, in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service, the Ministry will draw a road map for the reopening of schools when the time is right..
