NCC PSI Ghana supports Teachers Unions of Ghana Partnership schools

The National Coordinating Council (NCC) of Public Services International (PSI) in Ghana has issued a press release in support of the position of teachers unions of Ghana Partnership schools and on the occasion of International Women's Day. The NCC "notes with dismay the current trend of privatization of basic needs of communities especially the recent moves by government to privatize public basic education in some communities, through the Ghana Partnership Schools. This in the view of the NCC, would disadvantage many Ghanaian children and more especially girls". The NCC calls for "the immediate halt to all processes to put these basic schools in the hands of private operators".
