Permission to ask students in college of education to fend for themselves

The system is hot and this is affecting everything in the country. Are you in college or have intentions to join them soon? You might be feeding yourself in college soon ….

The feeding situation has become critical in Colleges of Education across the country and PRINCOF has written an emotional letter seeking permission from the Honorable Education Minister to allow them ask college students to fend for themselves.
Read the letter below
REQUEST FOR PERMISSION TO ASK STUDENTS IN COLLEGES OF EDUCATION TO FEND FOR
THEMSELVES
I write on behalf of the Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education (PRINCOF), to seek your approval for Principals to ask students to fend for themselves effective Monday November 7, 2022.
Principals of Colleges of Education have been trying really very hard to feed trainee teachers in recent times as a result of current market trends. Prices of all food items have shot up astronomically, and food suppliers have refused to supply any food items to Colleges because of the indebtedness of Colleges to these suppliers.
A request for an upward review of the feeding grant paid to Principals has not been approved, and it has therefore become increasingly difficult for Principals to continue to provide three meals a day to students at Six Cedis, Fifty Pesewas (C6.50).
In the light of the above, it is the wish of PRINCOF to be given permission to ask students to start fending for themselves. This is to ensure that the already stretched academic year is not disrupted.
Counting very much on your approval.
