There’s a great likelihood that senior high schools across the country would be shut down owing to food crisis which continues to grow by the day.
In the interim, the Education Ministry had claimed food supplies will reach the schools by Tuesday after the Upper West Regional Chapter of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) issued a 7-day ultimatum for the delivery to be made.
Unfortunately, JoyNews says that the administration is yet to fulfil that pledge.
It has, however, revealed that the government failed to see this promise while the Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Kwesi Kwarteng stated that there had been issues with the delivery.
This has reportedly aggravated the prevailing problem which is why schools will be closed down to coincide with the nationwide strike by several teachers’ organisations who are calling for a better salary to meet up with the rising cost of living.
The Eastern Regional Chapter of CHASS is the latest to issue notice of a probable shutdown of the schools should government fail to deliver the materials by the end of the week.
