'School Placement 4 Sale': Be Vigilant - Education Ministry Cautions Parents As They React To Exposé

The Ministry of Education has welcomed the Fourth Estate’s latest investigative piece, “School Placement for Sale” which uncovered widespread under-dealings in the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSPSS).

According to The Fourth Estate led by Manasseh Azure Awuni, the CSPSS which is a computerized system used to place students in various secondary schools is not as credible as it is touted to be.

Some parents according to the expose, had to pay as much as GHS20,000 to get their wards placed in schools. Others paid, GHS8500.

Speaking to this in an interview on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo' the spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, Kwasi Kwarteng commended Manasseh Azure and added they intend to invite him to help them in their investigations.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education has advised parents, guardians, and the general public to be vigilant and avoid paying money to secure school placement.
