It has been a while now since school activities were brought to a stop.
Everyone is waiting for the government to come out with a specific date to reopen school.
Various rumors have been circulating around that the government want to reopen school any moment soon. This kind of news sounded so bad in the ears of some associations of teachers.
Those teachers quickly come out to object that decision if it had been true.
Now the ministry of education has now spoken on the government’s decision on the school reopening date.
This is what he said.
Government hasn’t decided yet on when schools will be reopened in Ghana, the Deputy Education Minister in charge of Basic and Secondary Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwim has said.
At that time he said, the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service and health authorities are educating stakeholders on the way forward for the schools but government hasn’t decided yet.
News circulating suggest the government is likely to reopen schools within the first week of June despite the increasing number of the coronavirus cases.
As he spoke on the Sunrise morning show hosted by Alfred Ocansey on 3FM on May 20, Dr Adutwum wondered the source of that news.
The government imposed a ban on all gatherings as well as political party rallies, church activities and large funerals, among others, when covid-19 broke out in Ghana.
Concerning a possible reopening of schools, Dr Adutwum stated that the decision, apart from the engagement and assessments by the GES, will also highly depend on health considerations.
As it stands now that is the message from the ministry of education.
