The following is the fine details of how much has been allocated for each teacher participating in the ongoing training on the new curriculum. This information is from Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Minister of Education.
“We are not giving breakfast since it’s non-residential.
We are giving snack and a meal (lunch) and water at Ghc8 per participant per day for the 5 days.
Then we give each participant Ghc50 for transportation and Ghc50 as allowance after the programme.
We asked the District Directors to arrange with the SHS matrons to provide the one meal and snack.
We expected the matrons could provide the snack and a meal and a bottle of water at Ghc8 given that they could give students 3meals at Gh5.20.
We also provided money to each district for overheads such as transporting the food.
Headquarters and Regional teams are monitoring. We’ll be glad for specific Districts where there are challenges so we move in as soon as possible” according to the Education Minister.
