The Deputy Minister for Education Yaw Osei Adutwum has dismissed reports of dates being set for schools’ reopening across the country.
Dr. Adutwum says when a decision is made on the subject, it would be communicated to the entire country.
Reports on social media last week suggested that basic and secondary schools will resume in September after closed in March as part of measures to stop the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
But speaking on JoyNews’ ‘Beyond the Lockdown’ programme, the Deputy Minister said “whatever you see on social media, don’t trust it.”
He urged all students to partake in the digital learning platforms provided by schools and the government when possible.
According to Dr. Adutwum, what is important at the moment is defeating the novel coronavirus disease.
