The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) is calling on the various stakeholders in the education sector to throw their weight behind government’s double-track system after it releases the first batch of the Senior High School (SHS) placement last month.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of GNECC, Bright Appiah indicated that the success or failure of the policy does not only depend on government and civil society.
He noted that parents, the media and every relevant stakeholder have a role to play in ensuring its success because it affects our children.
“The design and consultative stages of the double track policy is over. All stakeholders with divergent opinions on the policy, including GNECC, need to get on board and support government at this critical roll out stage,” the Chairman stated.
Bright Appiah added that stakeholders, especially the media should encourage and assist parents and students by directing them to the various regional help desks set up by the Ghana Education Service to resolve any emerging issue related to the placement process.
According to him, any media discourse aimed at finding fault or apportioning blame should be discouraged. Let us support the Ghana Education Service to implement the policy of the Government of Ghana.
He emphasized that the Coalition in as much as wish Ghana Education Service (GES) a successful double track SHS policy implementation, they will undertake a review at the end of the first semester.
