GES Cautions Public Against SHS Placement Fraud

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has issued a warning to the general public about dishonest individuals who may likely defraud guardians under the guise of securing placement for their wards in the senior high schools that they claim to prefer.

In advance of the launch of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) portal on January 29, GES issued the warning in a statement.

In order to discourage others from participating in the annual event, GES prayed for guardians to be on the lookout for such dishonest individuals and to assist in reporting them to the nearest police station for further prosecution.
