The Ghana Education Service (GES) is cautioning parents to be on the high alert as it announces the placement of students in the various schools across the country.
The GES said they have nothing to do with such people who demand or pay money to facilitate placement into schools and want parents to report such persons to the police.
Addressing the media, Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Dr. Eric Nkansah, indicated that they have strengthened their internal controls, beefing them with third party institutions that would monitor their systems to ensure there are no abuses.
A total of 372,780 kids have been put into the schools of their choice automatically.
However, 165,601 were eligible for self placement because their choices could not be matched to them.
On February 20th, students are expected to report to their institutions to complete the admissions procedures.
The start of classes is scheduled for February 27th, 2023.
The GES reassured parents that every student who meets the requirements to attend school will be assigned to a school and advised them to be patient.
