Heads Of Institutions Warned Against ‘Protocol’ Admission


The education ministry is warning heads of institutions to desist from admitting students on protocol. Many students who fail to make the official admission requirement mange to enroll in schools, through all manner of influence.

Heads of senior high schools have been cited to use protocol to admit such students.

Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Pre-Tertiary Education, Alex Kyeremeh, says the situation denies qualified students their rightful places in schools.

According to the minister, the practice is against the laws of the education ministry as such perpetrators must put a stop to it.

“I am pleading with heads of schools to desist from turning down parents whose students are posted by the Computerized Schools Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) to your school.

“It is against our rules, don’t accept students posted to your school in the name of protocol to the detriment of those legally posted to your school”, Mr. Kyeremeh warned.

Meanwhile, over 10,000 students of schools in deprived communities are to receive scholarship of three years from the Education Ministry.

Officials say the package is to help improve the level of education in rural Ghana.

Other measures are being put in place to strengthen ICT, mathematics and sciences in basic schools come next year.

Alex Kyeremeh, announced this at the 50th anniversary ceremony of Kumasi High School over the week-end.

The scheme is part of interventions to enhance the delivery of quality education.

“Government considers education as the main thrust of its strategic policy to improve the quality of life of the Ghanaian”.

Mr. Kyeremeh indicated that this is reflected in government’s responsive shift in the strategic direction of the education delivery tailored to propel sustainable national development through engagement of stakeholders.

“It is intended to ensure that the country is able to deliver Educational system which is quality, equitable and accessible for all.

“And reflect the new thinking of schooling as the driver of economic success”, he stated.

We will collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure an effective education delivery will be pursued in the coming year.
