Double-Track System Can Be Mentained In Some Senior High Schools – GES




The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof Kwasi Amankwah says government must reconsider a continuation of the double-track system in some Senior High Schools (SHS).

This follows the suspension of the double-track system employed across the country after the reopening of schools for the 2020/21 academic year.

The green and gold double-track system was introduced by government to enable various senior high schools to take in more students due to infrastructural deficit in the various schools.

But announcing the reopening of schools in the country in an address to the nation, President Akufo-Addo explained that his government has been able to embark on infrastructural development in the various senior high schools (SHS), hence the decision to halt the exercise.

However, speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen after the release of the 2020/2021 SHS placement, Prof Amankwah said there must be a reintroduction in at least the country’s 50 top schools.

He stressed some of these schools are still over-subscribed which means a team of these students would be out of school for the academic year in view.

Prof Amankwah mentioned Wesley Girls, Achimota, Aggrey Memorial, Prempeh College, and St Roses among others, adding that most of these schools still have a lot of outstanding qualified students.

“I sometimes wonder if we cannot relook at our double-track system though we have been able to expand certain facilities.

“We could have divided the numbers we are getting this year if that was still in place. So if we can agree to continue in at least our top 50 schools, it would have increased enrollment for our own good,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service has published the 2020 Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) into Senior High Schools and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Schools (TVETS).

In a statement issued by the Service, out of the total number of 533,693 registered candidates, 494,530 candidates qualified to be placed.

Whilst 343, 264 of the candidates were automatically placed in one of their choice of school, 151,266 qualified candidates could not be matched with any of their choices.

The Service has therefore instructed such students “to do self-placement to select from available schools.”

For the 151,266 qualified candidates who could not be matched with any of their selected schools, GHS noted that they will be redirected to the Self-Placement Portal where they will be asked to answer some questions.

“Management of Ghana Education Services wishes to assure all students, especially, those who could not be matched with their choices during the automatic placement, parents and the general public that all schools with vacancies have been uploaded on the portal for students to select from during self-placement without hitches,” the statement added.

A JHS 3 student of Kroma 2 JHS at Nungua, a suburb of Accra in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana, together with his gang has attacked a teacher for punishing him over his failure to do his homework.

Starr News reports that after he was disciplined, the pupil fled home, picked up a gang in a Sprinter Bus and stormed the school, leaving the teacher with a facial injury. 
The teacher was saved by his fellow teachers and was sent to LEKMA Hospital to collect and release his wounds later on.

I Will Change The Lives Of Teachers For The Better Because I Know Their Cry-Minister Of Education Designate Speaks



The Minister-designate, who was a former Deputy Minister of Education in the first term of the government led by Akufo Addo, vowed to provide quality leadership when given the opportunity to achieve the reform agenda of the government in the education sector.

I’m a ‘chief teacher,’ and when I become minister, you’ll see me teaching in the classroom with my marker,” Dr. Adutwum assured.”

He vowed to provide the resources needed for talented yet needy students from impoverished communities to pursue their dream courses at universities. For that, he made reference a month ago to paying fees for 30 students to join university.

Again, he indicated that he would do everything in his power to make teachers satisfied with the job as they make up the most important part of the education of the country.

After his vetting, many people say that even from presidents they have heard plenty of promises and nothing really has been accomplished with all their promises, and so they are fed up with the fact that politicians have to lair to them with vain promises that are never accomplished.
However, those citizens’ arguments may be valid in some way, but I think we had him in office for 4 years as the then Deputy Education

Minister for the 2016-2020 governance cycle under his Excellency President Akufo Addo’s first-term administration.

Now, drawing on what was seen some years ago as the Deputy Minister of Education under his administration, we assume he will actually enforce, if not all, some of his commitments that will affect the growth of teachers and students.
