The grant forms part of the incentives the government is providing to motivate SHS teachers.
The new Academic Calendar Came with extra contact Hours, to enable teachers to complete their syllabus.
The Ministry of Education said that the grant is also to ensure that the quality of education provided at SHSs in Ghana is enhanced and sustained.
“It’s a commitment to ensuring smooth, timely, and efficient resource distribution in our quest to improving and sustaining quality education in Ghana,” parts of the statement are quoted.
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, Kwasi Kwarteng, has said that the government remains committed to resolving all the challenges faced by SHS across the country.
“… we take full responsibility and assure all Ghanaians that, wherever there are challenges, we’ll go in and resolve them,” he said.
The PRO, however, posited that the infrastructure challenge is caused by schools indicating that they have vacant facilities while they have not.
“I’m still wondering why you could declare that you could take, for instance, 500 boarding students while you know very well that there are no spaces or beds for them,” he added.
Some Basic School Teachers are also asking for their share of the ‘golden handshake’ bonus
