To increase productivity on the part of parents and guardians, Ghana's Minister of Education Mathew Opoku Prempeh wants basic school pupils to close at 4pm.
Honourable Opoku Prempeh has called on the National Council for Curriculum Assessment to review the closing time for basic schools in Ghana.
From the Minister’s point of view, productivity in the entire country is affected as parents and guardians of the pupils have to leave their various work places to pick up their kids from school.
The Education Minister questioned ‘why basic schools can’t close at 4 pm’ in the country.
Most basic schools in Ghana close around 2pm.
