The GES has introduced a semester system at the basic education level in the quest to reduce congestion in basic schools, ease pressure on teachers and help align academic calendars.

Under this module, students will spend 40 weeks in an academic year, instead of the usual 52 weeks.

But key stakeholders are asking for the withdrawal of the policy because they were not consulted.

In this regard, JoyNews’ Aisha Ibrahim hosted the following guests as they shared their views on the issue at hand.

The guests are; Ranking Member of Education Committee of Parliament, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, Head of Public Relations of Ghana Education Service, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, President of Innovative Teachers Association, Stephen Desu and Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare.
