Basic Schools struggling to fund sports activities due to govt’s refusal to disburse Capitation Grant – Apaak
Builsa South Member of Parliament Dr Clement Apaak has said basic schools in the country are struggling to fund sporting activities.
The Ranking Member on the Education Committee in Parliament said this is due to the failure of the government to disburse the Capitation Grant.
The capitation Grant is a policy initiated by the government to eliminate extra fees and charges at the basic school level.
The opposition lawmaker said this is one of the examples of how the Akufo-Addo administration has neglected basic schools.
“Basic Schools are struggling to fund sports activities due to governments’ refusal to disburse the Capitation Grant.
“This is yet another example of the neglect of our public basic schools by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP government,” Dr Apaak tweeted.
