The Ministry of Education has called on the public to disregard any news about the reopening of schools in the country. The ministry has made it clear that there are no immediate plans to reopen schools for full academic activities next month.
Addressing this at the National Inspectorate Board (NIB) School Establishment and Inspection Policy (SEaIP) Validation Workshop yesterday in Accra, the Chief Director of the Ministry of Education (MoE), Mr Benjamin K. Gyasi said that the report was a rumour and not from the ministry, adding, “The ministry will like to state categorically that aside from final-year students who are in school, the public should disregard reports going round that all other students would go to school in September.
When we get to the bridge we will cross it but we are not there yet. Once we get there, there will be a presidential directive after which the ministry will make the arrangements. But it is not true that we are going to school in September 2020.”
