The Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Adutwum, has stated that parents who feel they want to pay the fees of their wards enjoying the free SHS should feel free to do so.
Dr. Adutwum said the government would really appreciate and applaud any parent who does that.
He made this known while speaking in an interview with Starr News.
"...if you want to pay fees for your child enjoying free SHS, you go to the school and give money to the headmaster. We’ll applaud you for that,” he said.
He added that parents can visit the schools and make payment to the headmasters in the name of their wards
He also reassured parents of the highest standards of education for their wards amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr. Adutwum ceased the opportunity to also apologise to parents for sending their kids back home on the day they were asked to report to schools.
Meanwhile, Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, says pictures of the president and the minister in charge of education must be hanged in the offices of all headmasters in the country.
Speaking on ‘The First’ show monitored by YEN.com.gh on 3FM, Dr. Adutwum said that will boost civic education. “If you go to most public offices, you see the president's picture, the Coat of Arms, civics, it gets you to appreciate the country that you are growing up in as a child…,” he stated.
“It is very important to let them know that the picture they see, one day it will be their picture,” he added.
Speaking during the April 22 interview, Dr. Adutwum expressed gratitude to the president for the opportunity and the confidence reposed in him.
According to the Bosomtwe lawmaker, the appointment gives him a unique opportunity to transform the country’s education system.
