The Chairperson of the Accra Chapter of the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC), Ms. Judith S. Sawyer, has described the Ghana Education Service (GES) as one of the most corrupt institutions in the country.
She says the corrupt nature of the Service is preventing donor institutions and development partners from extending financial support to the sector.
Ms. Sawyer made this disclosure recently in Accra when she addressed a consultative meeting on Girls Education organized by the Greater Accra Chapter of the GNECC.
According to Ms. Sawyer, GES does not have good managerial structures in place hence funding destined for specific projects and activities are inappropriately managed “and fund finds its way into individual pockets.”
She has therefore advised that, if authorities at GES do not see the need to put in place good structures to govern the sector in order to attract donor funding, then education standards at the public schools will continue to fall resulting in failure among pupils in the public schools.
She noted that, 99% of teachers in public schools can teach much better than their colleagues in private schools but due to inadequate teaching and learning materials and incentives, teachers in the public schools are unwilling to teach at their optimum.
