- Hundreds of first year students have been posted to an uncompleted school building at Kumasi
- GES has hinted of plans to rectify the anomaly by the online posting system
The woes of several BECE candidates continues to deepen with recent reports indicating that some of them have been posted to an uncompleted community day school in the Ashanti Region.
It all happened when these first year students reported at the Drobonso Community Day School at Sekyere Afram Plains only to realise the school was still under construction.
Frustrated students from the Greater Accra and Western Regions has no choice than to go back home as contractors were seen at the project site working to ensure its completion.
Speaking to the media on this issue, deputy director of education, Mark Adateky revealed that by the time they were submitting names of schools, the facility was “by the lay man’s estimation about 80 percent complete” so they thought it would be ready by the start of the 2017/18 academic year.
“Our District Chief executive called the secretariat to inform them that the facility was not ready so they should not send students to it. I don’t know whether they could not get the message well or not; before we realized, just last week, some students were arriving in the district,” he revealed.
Meanwhile, the free SHS policy is expected to benefit in excess of 400,000 students across the country.
