Withdraw Semester Academic Calendar For Pre-Tertiary Schools - Minority to GES MoE

News Hub Creator

The Minority group in Parliament has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ministry of Education to withdraw the 2022 academic year calendar which stipulates a permanent semester system for the basic and secondary level institutions. According to the Minority, the semester calendar "lacks professional touch." They, therefore, called a more "academically friendly and healthy one."

In a statement signed by the Ranking Member on Parliament's education committee, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, the minority noted that it is the responsibility of the Ghana Education Service to fix the academic calendar for all pre tertiary institutions in the country.

But recently, the Ministry of Education has acted "unprofessionally" by taking over the responsibility of the Ghana Education Service (GES) in a preparation of a common academic calendar by setting up a committee devoid of the expertise of Ghana Education Service (GES).

"Something must be done about this ugently" said by the minority.
