Most institutions especially the tertiary institutions have turned to using the popular video conferencing application to ensure the continuation of teaching and learning.

YEN.com.gh, however, sighted a tweet by Top sports journalist, Michael Oti Adjei lamenting that schools want parents to pay for zoom classes for 2 and 3-year-olds.

Despite how unbelievable and ridiculous it sounds, it is just pointless to have a virtual class for toddlers.

Meanwhile, Education Minister, Matthew Opoku-Prempeh, has hinted that final year senior high school students might do a one-year national service programme if the COVID-19 persists and schools remain closed.

Explaining the need for the programme, Opoku-Prempeh said back in the day, anytime there was a bit of disruption in the academic calendar, the government introduced national service to cater for the disruption and also to keep the students busy.

Speaking on Metro TV's Good Evening Ghana and monitored by theghanareport.com, the minister said the government is looking forward to that should schools remain closed.
