The minister of education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has called for an examination of the collection of Parents Teacher Association (PTA) dues.
According to a report by Modernghana.com, he argued that the continuous payment of dues without any proper impact on learning and demand for accountability appears not to make sense.
He, therefore, urged the Parents Teachers Associations (PTAs) within Ghana’s educational system to shift their focus from dues collection to demanding accountability from the schools on the quality of education and their learning outcomes.
He made the appeal on Friday, March 15, 2019, when he met with national executives of PTAs in his office in Accra.
He bemoaned, “Sadly, PTA has now become synonymous to money collection and this should not be the case.”
