Don’t Expel students because of PTA dues- Napo to Headmasters

Education0

Education Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has caution headmasters from sacking students due to the payment of Parent-Teacher (PTA) Association dues

According to him the PTA dues cannot prevent a student from enjoying the free SHS policy.

He said the government has taken care of all expenses of the students thus there is the need for them to have a sound mind and learn.

The Minister of Education explained that, the government has taken care of the student’s uniform, textbook, exam fees, revision notes, among others under the free SHS policy.

He, therefore, entreated parents to report to his office any headmaster or headmistress that prevents their wards from schooling for their inability to pay PTA dues.

Dr. Prempeh revealed that 51,000 results were held in 2016 in the erstwhile Mahama administration because of school fees.

He stated that because President Akufo-Addo has Ghanaians at heart, he introduced the free SHS to take care of students.

Dr. Prempeh said these at the opening of a 450-bed capacity boys dormitory block at Fomena TI Ahmadiyya Senior High School on Wednesday, October 4, 2020, as part of President Akufo-Addo’s four-day campaign tour of the Ashanti region.
