The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) has called on all and sundry to support the double-track system introduced by the government in order to ensure its successful implementation.
According to the Coalition, the success or failure of the policy does not only depend on government and civil society.
Stakeholders, especially the media houses should encourage and assist parents and students by directing them to the various regional help desks set up by the Ghana Education Service to resolve any emerging issue related to the placement process.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of GNECC, Bright Appiah, he noted that, the Coalition has observed with concern, the reaction of various stakeholders, especially the media in the wake of the release of SHS placements as part of the roll out of the double track system.
“The design and consultative stages of the double track policy is over.
Therefore, all stakeholders with divergent opinions on the policy, including GNECC, need to get on board and support government at this critical roll out stage.
Parents, the media and every relevant stakeholder has a role to play in ensuring its success because it affects our children,” he stated.
This he said, any media discourse aimed at finding fault or apportioning blame should be discouraged.
“Let us support the Ghana Education Service to implement the policy of the Government of Ghana. GNECC will undertake a review at the end of the first semester,” he added.
