The Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, says this year has recorded the highest placement into various Senior High Schools (SHS) despite challenges encountered with the Computerized School Selection and Placement System(CSSPS).

The minister explained that 81% of the students were automatically placed into their selected schools, while 19% depended on self-placement.

According to Dr Adutwum, this represents about 95%, the highest recorded enrollment over the years.

“We have increased the placement of students. Over the years you get about 30% of students not getting a school. This year, we had 81% of students automatically placed in schools, with about 19% left. And we have enrolled 95% in various schools. A major accomplishment this year,” he said while addressing the press after giving an account of his achievement at the Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs General Meeting chaired by the Ashantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II.

According to him, the government is committed to improving the educational sector.

“We have new high schools under construction, science labs are being built in existing schools. WASSCE scores have improved under Akufo-Addo. There is no doubt that we are seeing a major transformation. STEM education has been given a major boost”.

On his part, Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II charged chiefs to monitor and ensure progression in schools.

“Nananom[Chiefs], we have heard everything the minister said. He has spoken so well about his work, including math and science improvement and the school placement concerns. What we have to do is to also follow up on all the educational infrastructure projects in our communities to inspect and witness the pace of work,” he added.
