Eastern Region CHASS to shut down schools after Friday if. . .

The Eastern Region Council of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has resolved to recommend to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to close down schools by Friday if government fails to make supplies to schools.

The Council also added a second option, which will be to direct parents to feed their wards or pick them home until the food shortage situation is normalised.

In a release, CHASS explained that schools have endured food shortage for the last two years while supplies have not been in line with policy directives.

Suppliers of food items, 3news.com has gathered, resort to supplying underweight items to schools.

Schools receive 50kg to 60kg maize bags instead of the 100KG.

Funds meant for perishables are still in arrears since 2021 with only two lodgements made in 2022.

Funds meant for recurrent have also been erratic, the Council complains, and it had been in arrears since 2021 and six months into 2022.

The CHASS Council says the aforementioned challenges have become unbearable hence its decision.
