The Ghana National Association of Teachers(GNAT) has expressed their disagreement with regards to GES reasons for postponement of re-opening date for SHS 3 students.
GNAT says it disagrees with the reasons given by the Ghana Education Service, GES for postponing the re-opening date for final year SHS Students after most of them had reported to schoo.
A statement signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo,the PRO of the GES, stated that the postponement was to give the form 3 students uninterrupted access in their preparations towards their final examinations.
Reacting to this, the General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah has explained that students learn better in a controlled environment, devoid of destructions, making the schools the perfect place to prepare for examinations.
Also, Mr. Musah spoke on observations on the double-track system since its re-introduction.
Meanwhile, the Conference of Directors of Private Pre-Tertiary Schools has bemoaned the situation where GES does not follow the approved academic calendar on re-opening dates.
President of the Conference, Philip Boateng Mensah says the situation has the tendency to destabilize the education sector.
Mr. Mensah also spoke on his observations on the double-track system which was reintroduced at the beginning of the term.
