Conference Of Directors Of Private Pre-Tertiary Schools-Ghana Makes Demands Known To Govt

The Conference of Directors of Private Pre- Tertiary Schools - Ghana ( CoDPPTS ) has called on government to give part of the COVID-19 Stimulus package to private schools to ease their economic burden brought about by the closure of schools from March 2020 as a result of the COVI-19 outbreak.

The Conference made the demand in a communique signed by it's President, Mr Philip Boateng Mensah.

On the Free SHS, the CoDPPTS said though the policy is laudable it challenges show that it must be a Pro-poor programme targeting low income earners and the deprived of the population instead of making it open for all categories of Ghanaians.

The CoDPPS also urged government to set a clear date for the reopening of schools to enable the schools make adequate preparation for the reopening.

It condemned plans by government to allocate 30% of SHS ADMISSIONS to Category 'A' schools to public school students and described the plan as discriminatory.

It also welcome the setting up of the National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) and pledged to collaborate with the Authority for the development of the country.
