The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has called for collaboration with all stakeholders ahead of government’s plans to reopen schools following the shut down in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak.
Dr. Prempeh made this call earlier today when he inaugurated a 10-member committee in Accra to deliberate and advise on modalities for the re-opening of schools in the pre-tertiary subsector for the approval of the President.
He told the committee that in its deliberations, it must ensure that all stakeholders are brought on board in drawing up its recommendations for transmission to the President and thanked them for accepting this important national assignment.
In reply, the chairman of the Committee, Prof. Dominic Fobih, a former Minister of Education and currently the chairman of the GETFund Board of Trustees, thanked the Minister for entrusting them with this responsibility and assured him that the committee would be diligent in all its deliberations and learn lessons from the recent limited reopening for final year students.
The committee is expected to report to the Minister on Monday 21st September 2020 on its recommendations.
