Parents of prospective Senior High School students have expressed concern at challenges they are facing with the placement system. While some are complaining of its slow pace, others say they cannot find the names of their wards at the schools they were placed.

Some were also placed in day schools when students lived miles away from the school.

A parent GBC’s Radio Ghana spoke to cited the case of his child whose name had earlier appeared at Labone Senior High School but was missing on the list on his subsequent visit to the school.

 

Meanwhile, Deputy Director of the Ghana Education Service, Dr Kwabena Tandoh says parents and guardians having challenges with the School Computerised Selection & Placement System are exaggerating the issues.

He however admits that several people had not been assigned schools, explaining that the situation is as a result of the, “choice patterns not reflecting spaces available in the schools”.

Dr. Tandoh disclosed that applicants who did not get schools of their choice were because of the limited spaces available compared to the number of people who selected them.

Explaining the challenges on a local radio station in Accra, Dr. Tandoh said most of the challenges are self-created.

He said parents who are complaining of the placements of their wards to day schools and others being given the option of day school although they far away, was only so because they chose it.

He stressed that the system is not responsible for such selections.
