The incoming President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Angel Carbonu, believes that the Ghana Education Service's sanctioning of head teachers for charging illegal fees under the Free SHS policy, was inconsiderate, judging by the infrastructure constraints in those schools.
"All the heads that have been found to be guilty came from schools with serious challenges with infrastructure and situations obstructive to teaching and learning," Mr. Karbonu noted on Eyewitness News.
Carbonu noted that, for some of these situations, like the case of La PRESEC, whose head teacher was charging fees for furniture the school needed, judgment calls were made because the schools were left with no choice but to solicit for help from parents.
The need for furniture at La PRESEC compelled the head to ask for extra fees This support becomes necessary because the schools have to contend with unforeseen expenditures, alongside the infrastructure deficits, which the government may not be covering in the free SHS policy, Carbonu said.
