The Minister of Education, Matthew Opoku- Prempeh, has hinted a one-year national service programme for all senior high school final year students if the deadly novel coronavirus persists and schools remain shut.

In an interview on Metro TV, the Minister said the government was keenly considering that option should schools remain closed.

Currently, the education ministry is relying on Electronic Learning platforms (E-Learning) to keep schools running,” he said.

Explaining the need for the one-year programme, the minister said during the O and A level era, anytime there was a disruption “aluta” in the academic calendar, the government introduced national service to cater for the disruption.

The West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) has been suspended across Anglophone West Africa due to the threat of COVID-19.

Students went home, uncertain when they will return.

President Nana Akufo-Addo announced the suspension of all educational activities after the country recorded some confirmed coronavirus cases.
