The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has thrown its weight behind various institutions calling for the closure of basic schools.

According to the association, until the government makes available Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for the various schools as promised by the sitting President.

The President of the Association, Mrs Philippa Larson, has disclosed that she going round various schools after their reopening, she observed that most students were not wearing nose masks, nor using hand sanitizers and above all, completely disregarding all COVID-19 safety protocols.

The Institute for Education Studies (IFEST) earlier today called on the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to suspend the re-opening of the basic schools till the appropriate PPEs promised to them by the government are distributed to all schools.

The Executive Director of (IFES) Peter Anti, said after campaigning for the re-opening of the schools, IFES had become terribly disappointed that the President failed to distribute the basic face masks and other PPEs to the schools.
