SHS heads seek postponement of reopening as disbursement delays

Heads of Senior High Schools in the country are pushing for the postponement of the reopening date for the 2019/2020 academic year due to delays in the disbursement of funds to the Schools.

Management of Ghana Education Service has fixed September 6, 2019, for the beginning of the 2019/2020 academic year through form 3 students on August 26 reported in their various schools.

However, Starr News has gathered that there is widespread anxiety among Heads of Senior High Schools over lack of Funds and food to feed the students.

According to Starr News Sources, the Conference of Heads of Government Assisted Secondary Schools has, as a result, suggested on two occasions to Management of the Ghana Education Service to reschedule the reopening date for the academic year, but their plea has not been agreed to.

According to the Headmasters, they will be forced to send the students back home if they do not receive their allocations, food supplies and logistics to take care of the students.
