Enhance transparency in computerized school placement process

An educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi in an interview with YEN.com.gh, called for GES authorities to ensure that the computerized school placement process is transparent

"Implement transparent and automated school placement systems to minimize human intervention and manipulation. Utilize technology to streamline the placement process, reducing the likelihood of manual interference and creating a more efficient and accountable system."

Mr Fenyi also called for public education on the school placement process and encouraged that stiffer punishment be meted out to officials caught trying to engage in colluded practices.

"Raise awareness among students and parents about the fair and unbiased school placement process, ensuring they understand the criteria and procedures involved. Involve the public in discussions about the school placement process, seeking feedback and suggestions to improve the system's fairness and effectiveness," he told YEN.com.gh.

She was able to achieve this with her remarkable fluency and unwavering confidence in achieving exceptional results.

"As my sister said earlier, in our family we don't fail, so I'm expecting 9 ones," she said.

What truly stood out was her unique manner of responding with "Affirmative" instead of a simple "Yes" to each question posed.
