According to the Executive Director Of African Education Watch, the government is spending a lot on Senior High Education to the disadvantage of pre-tertiary education, a situation that creates a lacuna in basic school development.

Addressing Participants at a roundtable discussion organized by the Citizen’s Coalition in Accra, Mr. Asare said, that, much of the expenses done in the Education sector must be reconsidered.

“I think the budget failed to appreciate that there is a certain wasteful expenditure that should leave the education space, especially teacher trainee allowance. The government has repeated that it intends to spend GH¢241 million in 2023 to feed adult trainees who are in tertiary education and have the right to access student loans just like other tertiary students.

“In austerity, the government must be cutting down on wasteful expenditure and spending more on the vulnerable, we also don’t see more enhanced spending on Free compulsory basic education,” Mr. Asare said.

In a similar development, the Africa Education Watch has petitioned the Parliament of Ghana not to approve the allocation of GH¢1.8 billion made to the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), a major education infrastructure financing facility in Ghana.

“The sharp decline in the 2023 allocation raises serious concern about the formula used in capping the GETFund in the 2023 budget, and whether it is by the Earmarked Funds Capping and Realignment Law.
