The spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, Kwasi Kwarteng says the Ministry will respond to the documentary “School Placement for Sale,” soon after watching the full video.
Mr Kwarteng told the Ghana News Agency, that “the Ministry cannot respond to a video if we have not watched the full version of the documentary.”
He said the Ministry had seen excerpts of the video but was yet to watch the full documentary and respond appropriately.
The documentary, by the Fourth Estate, captures parents, guardians, and officials in charge of school placement making deals to put wards in desired institutions.
Parts of the video showed some parents paying as much as GH¢20,000 to get their children placed in schools, while others paid GH¢8500 to get their children placed in schools of their preference.
In a statement on January 29, 2023, the Ministry of Education advised parents, prospective Senior High School students, parents, and the public against the payment of money to secure school placement.
