Residents of Ghana are worried about the school reopening schedule, and their demand from the government is to open schools as soon as possible.
One of the Facebook users, Kwao Foster, commented, “When is the 2023 academic calendar will be out?”
Another user said, Ghana Education Service, please, school resumes next week. Yet we have still not been given our laptops? What do you want us to use during computing lessons?This is not fair!”
