The Conference of Directors of Private Pre-Tertiary Schools has called on the Ghana Education Service to expedite action on the supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to all schools to ensure a stable and pandemic free academic environment. This follows a declaration made by the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa concerning the 10 million distribution of PPEs nationwide.
In an interview with Radio Ghana, President of the Conference, Philip Mensah revealed that not all schools benefitted from the over ten million pieces of nose masks and other protective equipment distributed by GES, because they were not adequate.
He however tasked the Ghana Education Service to empower school health coordinators at the district levels with resources to conduct regular monitoring of the schools as backup measures to enforce the protocols.
Mr. Mensah denied allegations that private schools do not comply with the safety protocols particularly at the stipulated time of closing.
