A former lecturer and a Head of Department at the University of Ghana’s Department of Political Science and the current Deputy Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Dr. Bossman Asare has advised government to make sure that its educational policies do not lead to the collapse of Private Universities and Secondary Schools in the country.
Dr. Asare maintained that these private educational institutions play critical roles in the nation’s educational developments and they must continue to be in operation to realize these contributions to national development.
He noted that, there is the need to have clauses in the nation’s educational policies that will ensure the sustenance of the survival and profitability of these institutions.
Sharing his views on educational development in Ghana with his followers on his Facebook wall, Dr Asare succinctly narrates:
“Government’s education policy must ensure that private tertiary and secondary institutions do not collapse because of their critical roles. If an elastic clause is required to enhance the survival and profitability of these institutions, the state must be committed to having such a clause in our education policy.”
