The Minister of Education, Matthew Opoku- Prempeh, has hinted a one-year national service programme for all senior high school final year students if the deadly novel coronavirus persists and schools remain shut.
In an interview on Metro TV, monitored by ghanascholarship.net, the Minister said the government was keenly considering that option before the schools were closed down.
“Currently, the education ministry is relying on Electronic Learning platforms (E-Learning) to keep schools running,” he said.
Explaining the need for the one-year programme, the minister said during the O and A level era, anytime there was a disruption “aluta” in the academic calendar, the government introduced national service to cater for the disruption.
