It has come to the attention of the Management of the Ghana Education
Service that some Heads of Second Cycle Schools are issuing unapproved
prospectus and also selling some of the items on the prospectus to Form One student reports to their school for admission. Some Heads are also allegedly selling free items that are supplied by the government to the students.
Management of the Ghana Education Service takes strong exception to this
practice, and wishes to state unequivocally that the practice is prohibited and must cease with immediate effect.
Investigations will soon commence into the issues to ensure that the right things are done in our schools. Heads of Second Cycle Schools are, therefore, cautioned to stick to the approved harmonized prospectus for
students. Any Head of School caught demanding any item(s) aside the approved ones will be severely sanctioned.
Parents/Guardians should be allowed to buy the approved items on the prospectus from the open market not in the schools to avoid any conflict of interest on the part of the school authorities.
