Just In: Education Minister To Shut Down Some Second Cycle Institutions, This Is Why



The Minister of Education, Mr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has challenged Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) as well as Principals of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to improve their educational outcomes or risk having their institutions closed down.

Explaining further, he indicated that a school with zero to ten percent pass rate should put together intervention programmes to ensure students find the opportunity for further studies instead of becoming a liability to their parents and the society due to their inability to pass their exam.

Adding to this, he stated that closing schools down will save the nation from the massive loss that will be incurred by government as a result of the existence of the school so that students affected will be redistributed to other nearby schools to enable them continue their education.

The Education Minister made this disclosure in a recent meeting while addressing CHASS and TVET institutions in the Greater Kumasi over the weekend.
