The Public Relations Officer for the Conference of Heads of Private Second-Cycle Schools (CHOPSS), Mr. Naphtali A. Kyei-Baffour has said it’s not in the best interest of a country to close down schools and expect the global COVID-19 pandemic which has come to stay to end before it reopens school.
Mr. Naphtali A. Kyei-Baffour suggested that immediate but gradual measures need to put in place to fit schools into the circumstances the world finds itself, instead of the government deciding to hold on for a longer period of time before reopening of schools without putting in place any measure.
The Public Relations Officer speaking in an interview with UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ morning show and monitored by websaet.com, advised the government to permit JHS and SHS final year students to start school with mandatory set down preventive protocols to slow the spread of the disease.
The Educationist furthered that “teachers and students within the category mentioned must be first tested before the said date of classes begins. Frankly, the result of this proposal if granted will clearly without delay show government the way forward to get our schools back on track since this pandemic will not make us go back to normalcy”.
