The Minister of Education Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh in collaboration with its ministry are yet to undertake a policy to administer or manage and control all schools including both public and the private ones.

He added that the management from some of the private institutions are very poor due to inadequate fund.

Life he said has become very difficult for some private school teachers during this covid-19 pandemic period. And this is largely due to the non payment of salary for the past six months by the management and stakeholders of the school.
Furthermorethe government had finally spoken on the resumption of schools. Just a month ago, his excellency Nana Akufo Addo delivered his 16th address to the nation. In fact, in his address, it was stated clearly that SHS 2 and JHS 2 students should report on 5th October, 2020 to complete their syllabus.
Whilethe remaining nursery, kindergarten, primary, JHS 1 and SHS 1 have been postponed to January 2021. Also, he highlighted that, appropriate measures will be put in place to ensure that nothing is lost from the academic calendar or curriculum.
According to the directives of private schools, it was revealed that the payment of the school fees are normally used to settle their teachers. It therefore implies that one’s children are at home amidst this covid-19 period, no fees can be collected from them and henceforth private teachers are doomed.

Moreover , the minister added that this pandemic period must be used as a lesson to all private school teachers and hence there is the need to reform a policy to safe guard our private school teachers in terms of hardship.
