The National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations has asked the government to return all BECE and WASSCE candidates awaiting to write their final examinations home.
“In the current circumstances, the children are psychologically unstable and would, therefore, not be of sound mind to write the WASSCE and BECE examinations and come out successfully,” a decision taken at a National Executive Consultative Meeting indicated.
“We, therefore, suggest that these examinations be postponed until the situation is brought under control.”, a statement by the association issued Monday, July 13 said.
The association cited the inadequate supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) among others. These are some of the reasons they feel the children are not safe in school.
The association is of the view that the implementation government announced prior to the reopening of schools is not followed effectively.
