The Ghana Education Service has arrived at a decision to introduce Distance Learning to the doorsteps of students by means of Radio and Television stations.

This comes as a result of workshops held in the Noda Hotel at Fumesua in the Ashanti Region on Wednesday, October 13, 2021.

The Director of Partnership and Affiliations of the Ghana Education Service, Mr Fredrick Birikorang told the press that the decision is to the knowledge of Ghanaian students and boost their confidence as better citizens. He defined that the initiative will serve as extra classes when they close from school.

He asserted that due to the low cost of radio, each and every student can have access hence their decision to curb the unnecessary time spent by learners watching and listening to some television and radio programmes respectively.

The lessons he assured will be led by qualified teachers to ease understanding Maths, Science, English and Social will be the basic subjects to be attended tackled.

Mr Fredrick Birikorang disclosed that during the lockdown of the covid-19, a vacuum was created in almost all schools' curriculum and it is necessary to catch up to speed through the digital means of learning.

He finally advised parents to take good care of their children when it comes to education to patronise the new system.
