Schools Directed Not to Sack Students for Nonpayment of PTA Dues

Schools nationwide have been directed to stop sacking students whose parents have not paid Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) dues. This directive was made known by the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa.

He said while the service acknowledged the support that such associations contribute to the enhancement of education and the running of the schools, it was of the belief that it was wrong for schools to sack students for nonpayment of the dues.

He gave the directive at the Graphic Business/Stanbic Bank Breakfast Meeting on sustainable funding for Free SHS Policy in Accra.

The event is to collate views on how the country can sustain the Free SHS Policy, which is costing over GHS400 million in its second year.

The policy is currently funded by allocations from the petroleum revenues to the education category of the annual budget funding amount (ABFA).

It enters its full session next year when three categories of students will be enjoying it.
