The Ghana Education Service Council (GES), says it is shocked at the appeal by Conference of Heads of Private Schools (CHOPSS), to government to suspend the double intake system.

The GES Council said, the Conference has been part of the planning process since it was announced by government.

Chairman of the Council, Michael Nsowah on GBC’s News and Currant Affairs Programme ‘Behind The News’ said he is sure, the conference will rescind its decision at the end of its Annual Conference in Kumasi.

BACKGROUND

The Conference of Heads of Private Second Cycle Schools (CHOPSS) had earlier appealed to the government to put a hold on the implementation of the Double Track System in Senior High Schools (SHS) which begins next month (September), 2018.

At a dialogue on education with focus on the double track system, the Public Relations Officer of CHOPSS, Naphtali Kyei Baffour said if private schools were included in the implementation of the free SHS, it will not have resulted in the double track system.

He said government should allow private schools to absorb the rest of the students instead of the double track system.
