As the food crisis worsens, there’s a good chance that high schools throughout the nation may have to close.
After a seven-day ultimatum from the Upper West Regional Chapter of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), the Education Ministry has confirmed food supplies would arrive at schools by Tuesday, according to the Education Ministry.
The administration has not yet delivered on this pledge, according to JoyNews.
While the Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Kwesi Kwarteng, stated that there had been difficulties in the delivery, the government was unaware of this pledge.
When teachers’ unions go on strike throughout the country to seek higher wages to keep up with the growing cost of living, schools are expected to be shut down to avoid further disruptions.
As of this week, the Eastern Regional Chapter of CHASS has served notice of a probable school closure if government supplies are not delivered.
