Mr. Alexander Yaw Danso, the President of the National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations, has praised Government and institutions, including the Ministry of Education (MoE), Ghana Education Service (GES) and the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for conducting a leak-free Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) this year.
According to Mr. Alexander Danso, this year’s BECE was one of the best examinations conducted in the country and said, “Apart from Bunkpurugu or so where some 200 candidates did not write their first two papers due to a change in their examination centres, we have not heard of any major incident of leakage anywhere in the country. I think this is one of the best years as far as reports of leakages during BECE are concerned.”
Speaking to this reporter in Accra, Mr. Danso said this year’s BECE could not have been successful without the efforts of the Minister of Education Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Director-General of GES Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa and the management of WAEC.
He pledged the support of parents to the process of quality education delivery to children and added, “Our Association shall continue to support child education in the country. We, therefore, appeal to MoE, GES and others to give us the due recognition as parents and as an association so that together we can push the nation’s education forward.”
