Parents, guardians, and stakeholders across the nation have commended the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, for the incident-free Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) exercise this year.
Concerned Ghanaians are praising the Education Minister for the seamless self-placement and general admission process, highlighting the absence of recorded incidents as evidence of prudent measures implemented by Dr. Adutwum and supporting agencies under his Ministry. This, they assert, has resulted in a smooth, fast, and fair exercise.
Mr. Appiah Kusi Adomako, the West Africa Regional Director of CUT International, a research and policy think tank, expressed particular satisfaction with the efficiency observed at the national resolution center.
He commended parents and guardians for their comportment, leading to the easy processing and resolution of challenges.
“I was impressed when I visited the Accra Regional Resolution Centre last week where I saw the smooth arrangement of the process leading to parents and their children relaxing while going through the process of having their issues resolved,” Mr. Adomako stated.
He further urged the Ghana Education Service (GES) to enhance publicity on result release timelines and the reopening date for first-year students.
Mr. Adomako also raised concerns about the sale of scratch cards for checking examination and placement results, urging a review by the Education Ministry and GES.
Madam Comfort Nsiah, a Kasoa-based businesswoman, shared her amazement at the speed with which issues were resolved at the national resolution center in Accra, making it more convenient for parents to return to their workplaces and homes. She urged the Minister to persist in implementing transformative education policies.
The Education Ministry’s strategic measures over the past three years have aimed at simplifying the CSSPS, ensuring fairness and efficiency.
These efforts have significantly reduced the time parents and guardians spend at resolution centres, contributing to an improved overall experience for those seeking school placements.
