Africa Education Watch has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to publish the double-track academic calendar for the second semester within two weeks to help stakeholders prepare for it.
According to the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare, the unavailability of the calendar has left teachers stranded as they do not know what to expect to make plans for it.
He added that, when the time table is finally out, parents would equally plan adequately to prepare their children for school at the opportune time without being left out because they are not being abreast of what’s going on.
In a press release signed by the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare copied to GhanaWeb, it said “we call on the GES Council to exercise its oversight responsibility over the Director-General and ensure there is proper planning and forecasting, leading to a definitive time table for the Double Track SHS academic calendar. It shall be appreciated if the GES publishes within the next two weeks, a definitive time table for the reminder of the academic year to enable adequate preparation by stakeholders”.
The group is also calling for a clearly defined roadmap that will lead to a definitive time table for the Double Track SHS academic calendar.
