The Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Mrs Belinda Serwaa Addo, has said the Ghana Education Service (GES) could respond adequately to the ever-increasing demand for accountability if communication between the service and the public was strengthened.
She said the GES was a large and complex organization with various shades of stakeholders and that it required more and regular information flow between it and the public.
Mrs Addo was addressing Public Relations Officers (PROs) from the metropolitan, municipal, district and educational units of the GES in the Ashanti region at a day's workshop in Kumasi.
She appealed to the officers to design effective action programmes that would support the drive to renew and sustain the service's image and credibility.
Mr Adusei Boateng, the acting Ashanti Regional PRO of the GES, said regular workshops and other educational programmes would be organized for the PROs to make them knowledgeable, efficient and proactive.
