The Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Mr Joseph Kwabena Onyinah, has urged private second-cycle institutions to improve on their facilities so as to be included in the Computer School Selection and Placement Systems (CSSPS) programme.

Additionally, it was important they ensured that at least a third of their teaching staff, were professionally trained.

Mr Onyinah was addressing the opening of a three-day meeting of the Conference of Heads of Private Second-Cycle Schools (CHOPSS) at the Christian Village in Kumasi on Friday.

It was on the theme; “Providing quality education: the role of private second-cycle institutions.”

Mr Onyinah reminded them about the need to meet standards and regulations set for schools by the Ghana Education Service (GES).

She warned the private second-cycle institutions against arbitrary school fees increase without the consent of GES and said doing that contravened the service’s regulations.

He, however, assured the conference of the services’ readiness to improve and strengthen its ties with the private institutions and involve them in its training programmes to enhance performance.

The National Chairman, Reverend Prince Kwame Katu, advised the management of private educational institutions to put their schools in “good shape” and to see to it that the right environment was created for effective teaching and learning.

Mr. J.B. Danquah of the CSSPS said there were plans to include some private institutions in the computer placement system.

Nana Asampon Boakye III, the Asamponhene of Kumasi, who represented Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, gave the assurance of the Asantehene’s determination to support the promotion of quality education in the country.

Monsignor Douglas Peters of the Saint Peter’s Minor Basilica in Kumasi, entreated the CHOPSS not to train their students for only academic purposes but morally and spiritually as well.
