The Deputy Director General of the Ghana Education Service, in charge of quality and access has said that all students will be promoted when school resumes in January 2021. He made this statement when he granted an interview with Daniel Dadzie on JoyNews monitored by Samuel Ahiagah, a Lead Educator of Informed Teachers Network.
Mr Kwabena Tandoh said that it has become possible because they don’t want to go against UNICEF’s policy on Right Age Enrolment where students are enrolled with their right ages. This is because, new students will be coming in the next academic year.
Another reason he cited that influenced their mass promotion is because they don’t want classes to be truncated in their levels. He said this will not leave a gap when all students are promoted.
What do you make of this?
