Parents stranded at Ministry of Education over 2017 BECE placement issues

Some parents students who took this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) are currently at the Ministry of Education to rectify various challenges with their ward’s SHS placements. 

By 7am on Tuesday, the wards were dotted all over the compound of the Ministry and the Ghana Education Service hoping to address their respective challenges before the close of day; which has been set by the Ministry for completion of all placement issues.

The Ministry of Education on Monday admitted that it had challenges with its online portal for accessing the placement information and promised to address it.

By Tuesday morning, the Ministry has introduced a new hitch-free website to serve the same purpose.

But some parents who are currently at the premises of the Ministry are there for peculiar challenges including ‘wrong placement’ of their wards.

A parent said his ward was placed in a special school for the deaf instead of a regular Senior High School hence was seeking a change in school.
