the challenges that might crop up in the management of their schools.

dealt with if school authorities responded quickly and directed them to the
appropriate authorities to resolve them.

Dadease Agricultural SHS, he said, timely interventions to resolve issues were
necessary to address some of the challenges to promote quality education
delivery in schools.
The visit was part of a two day tour of
various SHS’s in the District to assess the enrollment process under the
double-track system in the schools.
It was also to provide the leadership of the
District Assembly and the Ghana Education Service (GES) with a field experience
of some of the challenges being encountered by school authorities in the
implementation of the new educational policy.
“Challenges will always pop up in the schools
but the level and time of response from school authorities to the appropriate
places such as GES and the Assembly, among other places, for resolution is
necessary in building the confidence of parents, guardians and all stakeholders
in the sector’’, Mr. Agyekum stressed.
He commended school authorities, parents and
guardians for cooperating to ensure the successful take-off of the new system.
