The angry parents and teachers of Achimota Preparatory School say the Ghana Education Service(GES) has no right to take over the private institution in a forceful way.

Speaking on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM on Monday one of the teachers, Adarkwa Yiadom maintained that this is “unfortunate and amounts to bullying.”

He said despite the fact that the GES is scheduled to assumed management of the private school today, January, 27, the school authorities expects more dialogue with GES for both parties to reach a middle-ground on the issue.

Meanwhile, Kasapa FM’s Akokoraba reports the school is calm despite the planned take over of the private institution by government today.

The Parent Teachers Association (PTA) of the Achimota Preparatory School (APS) in the Greater Accra region have vowed to resist any attempt by the Ghana Education Service (GES) to take over the school.

In a letter addressed to the Regional Director of the GES, Ms Monica Ankrah, the PTA said the GES has failed to give any lawful reason, short of regulatory matters why they will have to take over the management of another corporate entity registered and limited by guarantee.

“You are showing disregard for the pupils, staff and their livelihood on a whim and we deserve the right to defend our investments and reputation with any means possible,” the PTA said.
