The Minister of Education,Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has directed the removal of various clauses from the Pre-Tertiary Bill currently before Parliament.
This follows extensive discussions between the Ministry and the various teacher unions, who have expressed misgivings about particular sections of the Bill.
In particular, the relevant sections are clauses 29 to 37 of the Bill which come under the heading ‘Decentralised Education at the District Level’.
In ordering the removal of these clauses following careful reflection on the issues raised by the unions, Dr. Prempeh expects that the other very important parts of the Bill could now proceed through the preliminary process with the support of all stakeholders to be passed into law.
