Suspend school placement system, abolish 'shameful' solution centres – Ablakwa

A former Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa wants the government to, as a matter of urgency, suspend the entire computerised school placement process following the myriad of challenges that have characterised the system, ABC News can report.

The North Tongu MP also wants the government to completely abolish all solution centres established by the Ghana Education Service to help resolve the challenges of parents and students until the system is perfected.

In a social media post, Mr Ablakwa criticised the establishment of the solution centres, describing the move as “weird and shameful concept.”

“Government ought to consider the following suggestions without delay: Immediately suspend the entire placement process and return to the drawing board; Outrightly abolish this weird and shameful concept of a dehumanizing CSSPS Solution Centre currently operating from the Black Star Square.

“Government’s decision to create more solution centres in other regions which only means nationalizing the agony of our people across the country is most insensitive, reckless and offensive.
