Education Minister to close down non-performing schools.
The Conference of Heads of Aided Secondary Schools (CHASS) and Principals of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Institutions have been tasked by the Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, to enhance educational outcomes or risk having their institutions shut down.
In his remarks to the Conference of Assisted Senior High Schools (CHASS) participants and Principals of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) organizations in Kumasi on Saturday and Sunday, Dr. Adutwum made this announcement.
He emphasized that a school should develop intervention programs if its pass percentage consistently ranges between zero and ten percent.
He claimed that closing the schools would help the country avoid the significant financial losses that the government was suffering as a result of the institutions’ continued operation.
In situations where schools are shut down, the impacted kids are transferred to other neighboring schools so they can continue their education, according to Dr. Adutwum.
All SHS heads attended the meeting on Saturday, and on Sunday, the principals of TVET institutions from around the nation joined them.
He praised the leaders for their contributions to the development of education in the nation and promised to keep giving the necessary funding.
He also exhorted them to put in a lot of effort to ensure that they got the desired outcomes.
