Schools will remain open despite strike by teachers – GES

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed Heads of Senior High Schools through the Regional and District Directors to mobilise their Management teams to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students in schools.

This comes after the leadership of all the various unions in the Pre-Tertiary Education Sector embarked on a nationwide strike in response to government’s failure to grant them a 20% cost of living allowance amidst the current high inflation rate, increases in price of goods and services, among others.
