Ghana sets up 10 member committee to mull reopening of schools

A 10-member committee has been set up by Ghana to consider conditions for the reopening of schools in the pre-tertiary sector, that have been shut since March this year in the wake of the novel Coronavirus pandemic, said a statement from the Education Ministry.

To be chaired by former Minister for Education, Dominic Fobih, the committee has been tasked to deliberate and give suggestions on the modalities for the reopening of schools in the country for the approval of Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

It must be recalled that the West African country, after months of its fight against the virus and later easing of restrictions, reopened school for final years in the tertiary as well as senior high and junior high schools on June 15, 22, and 29 respectively. The move came to enable students to appear for their final year exams.
