The Ghana National Council of Private Schools  (GNACOPS) has said that the Teacher Unions’ thoughts on GES’s proposal for reopening of Schools was not a ‘Popular Decision’ and should be disregarded.

The Unions in a press statement issued on Monday, May, 18,2020  criticised the Ghana Education Service (GES) over a letter requesting proposals for reopening of schools in the country.

The Four teacher Unions – GNAT, NAGRAT, TEWU and CCT said the GES letter which suggests that the body has launched a stakeholder consultation to provide President Akufo-Addo with measures to be taken ahead of a possible reopening of all basic and senior high schools is uncalled for.
