Let Parents Feed Their Wards or We Close Down Schools – E/R CHASS

The Eastern Regional branch of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has sent a resolution to the Ministry of Education after an emergency meeting on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, on the shortage of food in the schools.

The headmasters say they are struggling to feed the students due to the situation.

Excerpts of the resolution state“Suppliers of food items for some time now have been supplying underweight items to the schools. An example is 100 kg of Maize has been reduced to 50 kg or 60 kg”.

CHASS complained over nonpayment of arrears making management of the schools very difficult.

“Since 2021, funds meant for recurrent [expenses], have been released once. By extension, recurrent funds are in arrears since 2021 and 6 months into 2022,”

The Eastern Regional chapter of CHASS has therefore recommended to Ghana Education Service (GES) to either close down the schools by Friday, July 15, 2022, or direct parents to either feed their wards or pick them home until the situation normalizes.

The Upper West branch of CHASS served notice last week of the imminent closure of the schools if they do not receive supplies.

The National Buffer Stock Company has however said it has dispatched truckloads of food to the schools, but, the schools say they have not received any food.
