Focus on the infrastructural challenges, not changing of uniforms for basic schools – Partey Anti tells govt

The Executive Secretary of the Institute for Education Studies (IFEST-Ghana) Dr. Peter Partey Anti, has told the Ministry of Education to rather channel resources into tackling the infrastructural challenges at the basic school level instead of changing the uniforms for basic schools.

He noted that most of the schools have infrastructural challenges, no access to internet and electricity.

Changing of uniforms, he said, should not be an issue for the government at the moment because there are other pressing needs in basic education

“It’s not an issue we should even be thinking about right now, we have pressing needs in our basic school system. Policies in the education sector aren’t for a select few but for the whole nation. The government needs to sit up,” he said on the Ghana Tonight show on TV3 on Thursday, April 25.

He added “Our basic schools have deteriorated, most of the schools have infrastructural challenges, no access to internet, electricity and a plethora of other issues.”

The Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, had hinted at plans to change the brown and yellow uniforms worn by pupils of basic schools in the country.

According to Dr. Yaw Adutwum, this is part of many transformational initiatives to revive basic education and make it attractive in the country.

“We are changing the uniforms of public basic schools in the country. The yellow and brown that you see now, you will see no more. Reformation is coming to a community near you, and you will see it,” he revealed.

The Education Minister also hinted of a change in color of the outlook of basic schools in the country.
