The Gomoa West Ghana Education Service (GES) is liaising with the district assembly to close down all unregistered schools in the district.
Mr Emanuel Kwaku Glagoe, the Assistant Director in-charge of Supervision at the Gomoa West District Education Office, said this at a meeting with some proprietors of private schools in the district.
He expressed concern that in some of the private schools, the children were always seen outside the classrooms and urged proprietors of such schools to change for the better.
Mr Peter Bright Amankah, the Gomoa West Director of Education, at another meeting with the proprietors of private schools, said establishing private schools were not the most fertile grounds for making money.
He expressed worry that in many instances private school proprietors do what pleases them without taking into cognisance what has been laid down for them.
According to the director some private schools operate under wooden structures and charge exorbitant fees.
“The GES wants to do away with such mushroom schools and upgrade those that are operating well.”
