Coronavirus: Roll out distance learning programmes now – GNECC to government

The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) has asked the government to fast track the roll-out of distance learning programmes to assist students who are home due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The group also asked the government to use the various media outlets to roll out the learning process.

In a statement, Joseph Atsu Hoamdzi, the Interim Chairman, of GNECC said: “We urge the government to fast track the roll out of distance learning programmes on various media platforms to engage the children while at home.

“We recommend the use of television and radio which have an extensive reach so that no child is left out of the learning process.”

The statement added: “We also want the government to intensify public education on the various interventions being introduced to address the fallouts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The government should make sure the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) is well-resourced to engage in excessive education on the pandemic nationwide”.
