Social media reactions
A section of Ghanaians have shared their views on the issue. Here are a few of them from Facebook.
“All PTA projects have been abandoned in various Senior High Schools. Some of these projects are teachers bungalows and dormitories.
Teachers are paying huge sums of money to rent accommodation. In some cases teachers borrow, they don’t even finish paying, and the rent will expire.
GES, kindly allow the parents to help by setting a ceiling for them so that they can finish some of these projects that are left at the mercy of the weather.
When the projects come on stream, they will help both teachers and students.”
“If so, then all the Headmasters in Ghana must be interdicted.”
“Then, all the headmasters and mistresses should also go. They made millions this year.”
“Well-done GES we hope to see more of that, that is how active leadership looks like.”
