President for National Council for Parent-Teacher Association (NCPTA), Alexander Yaw Danso has regretted that some of the PTA leaders in various schools of the regions have allowed themselves to be used by some of the school heads.
Speaking to the media during his tour of the Upper East Region, Mr. Danso explained that before the media reported on January 14, 2019 that PTA dues had been suspended, the association had already met with GES council on July 19, 2018 and a conclusion was reached that the PTAs should collect the dues and manage their own affairs.
“We had met with GES council as far back as July 19, 2018 and often decided that the PTA’s should collect and manage their own affairs.” He explained
Mr. Danso further stressed that the ban was lifted on March 20, 2019, but reiterated that National Council of Parent Teachers Association is a registered independent organization which can be sued or sue and will be unfair to ban them from their mandate for education development.
However, Upper East Regional Chairman of PTA’s Mr. Vincent Atoore told A1 News that developments such as infrastructure in Schools in the region are now stagnant and cannot make a head way because of the ban imposed on PTA activities. He therefore, called on government to resend its decision urgently to arrest the situation in time.
Addressing PTA Chairmen during the one-day engagement forum in Bolgatanga, the National Coordinator of NCPTA’s Christian Atsu announced the introduction of a new payment plan system.
According to him, the payment plan system will help the organization move away from some of the earlier reported irregularities experienced in some schools across the country.
