Education Think Tank, Africa Education Watch (Eduwatch) seems to have a solution to the public’s drained trust in the GES’ placement system into the various Senior High Schools (SHSs).
According to Eduwatch, the Ministry of Education (MOE) can replenish the lost confidence if only the Ghana Education Service (GES) will publish the examination results of candidates on its website.
It suggested that the names or index numbers and scores of all students in every SHS must be published.
“The Ministry of Education can improve public trust and acceptance of the CSSPS if the Ghana Education Service commits to transparency by publishing on its website, the names or index numbers and scores of all students in every SHS.
“Transparency, accountability, and public awareness of a merit-based, equitable system is key to system improvement”, the education think tank said.
This comes in the wake of the challenges some students and parents are encountering with the Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).
Concerns have been raised over the inability to get qualified BECE candidates placed in schools of their choice.
