The president Nana Akufo Addo’s pronouncement of reopening the basic schools in January, 2021 is now unbearable situation for the private schools in the country.
Some of them who spoke off camera say, without the private schools there could not be any better education in Ghana starting from the basic to tertiary education.
They said over 40 percent of schools in Ghana are owned by the private sector helping to create job opportunities and expansion of school enrollment.
They asked could the government schools alone cater for all Ghanaians optioning for education?
They said it said, the government has completely ignored thousands of teachers and their none teaching staff in the private schools.
It therefore shows clearly that the government doesn’t see the roles of the private sector in education.
They are using the media to plead with his excellency, Nana Akufo Addo to consider the private schools who are now struggling to survive.
