The Daily Graphic is of the view that preventing a student from participating in any academic work because the parent or guardian could not afford to pay a levy is unacceptable.The paper therefore supports the decision of the GES to ban the imposition of such levies. It also endorses the decision to form a committee to take another look at the structure and activities of PTAs in schools. The hope of the paper is that, the committee will help set the ground rules for the operations of PTAs such that their activities do not affect the student negatively.

The Ghanaian Times is uncomfortable with the strike declared by NAGRAT, to press home their demand for the payment of their salary arrears. The paper is of the view that such unrest affect teaching and learning in schools from the primary through to the university level. The paper strongly believes a negotiation table to draft a new collective agreement is the best place to settle such matters and is encouraging NAGRAT to allow GES to resolve the grievances.
