Some disgruntled parents and guardians who are concerned about what pertains in the classroom, are raising grave concerns over the new directive announced by the Ghana Education Service (GES) regarding when the preschool students in the public schools will be vacating when they finally return to school. Parents perturbed about GES directive.

According to GES, the kids are going to be in school for twenty (20) weeks with just at least one week break or recess.


These parents are asking the managers of our educational sector to come out clear and clarify to them in a plain language, how on earth will children below eight years will cope with the long span of the educational calendar for this year.

Parents are of the view that, they know very well that, psychologically, it will not augur well for the development of the infants as they do not have the mental strength, tenacity and capacity to grasp whatever transpires in the classroom for that lengthy period.


It is obvious that, public kindergarten one and two kids are also remaining in school for twenty long weeks before they will vacate.

The question still remains: how will they cope with such an exhaustive academic calendar?
