On the Occasion of the Africa Union (AU) Day of the African Child, the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) is calling on stakeholders in education to support the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) to address pending challenges in schools.
Instituted on June 16, 1976, the AU Day has been celebrated annually in remembrance of the children who died in Soweto, South Africa as they marched on the street in protest to what they thought was a violation of their rights to quality education.
With the day being commemorated across the continent, GNECC in a press release is advocating for free, quality, equitable and accessible education for all.
“We use this opportunity to call on all key stakeholders in the education sector to get on board in complementing the effort of the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to address the pending challenges in our schools that would ensure that no child is left behind, towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 targets,” part of the release from GNECC reads.
