      Eduwatch Hits GES/ MoE Over Approved Prospectus For SHS 1 Students

      The Ghana Education Service has disclosed plans to investigate senior high schools which are charging SHS 1 students to pay illegal fees and schools issuing unapproved prospectus for SHS 1 students. However, the Africa Education Watch CEO, Kofi Asare is baffled why the Ghana Education Service refused to make public the approved prospectus for SHS 1 students. Below is query.

       

      “The Ghana Education Service has an approved SHS prospectus but wont make it public, making it easier for many SHS to extort parents?

      The Nkansah led management must depart from this archaic culture of limited disclosure to one of limited non-disclosure, if they are genuinely interested in transforming that institution.

      How does the GES convince parents that, it did not deliberately allow SHS to demand A4 and foolscap reams, electric bulbs, boxes of white board markers, weedicides, car dusters, garbage bins etc because government has always failed to provide SHSs funds to procure those items when they were needed?

      In a particular school, the list of unapproved items was in excess of GHC 1,300, more than how much government spends on a SHS boarding student in a semester.

      Merely warning SHS heads in public after a public outcry, when it is obvious almost NO SCHOOL respected your so-called approved prospectus could rather smack of a subtle conspiracy.

       

      Better crack the whip!”

      The GES should cause defaulting SHS heads to return all A4 and foolscap reams, electric bulbs, boxes of white board markers, weedicides, car dusters, garbage bins, etc to parents within days, rather than issuing threats to erring employees.

      The GES should publish the approved prospectus to provide a respite for parents who are still struggling to raise funds to fully finance the unapproved prospectus.

      Government cannot run a free SHS policy where it absorbs about GHC 2,000 per student, per year, with the aim of removing financial barriers to access, only for parents to be greeted with a GHC 6,000 prospectus with a much stronger potential to exclude the poor.
