Three hundred and eighty teenage mothers who dropped out of school due to their pregnancies and subsequent childbirth have been re-enrolled by the Regional Education Directorate to their various schools.
These girls got pregnant last year following the closedown of schools in the wake of COVID-19.
This was disclosed by the Regional Education Director, Mrs. Ivy Asantewa Owusu at the inauguration of the re-constituted Bono Regional Coordinating Council (RCC).
“Also, another 800 girls who were dropouts have returned to the classroom after steps to address issues were taken by the Ghana Education Service (GES)”, she added.
The inauguration ceremony saw dignitaries, heads of departments, Directors amongst others, and the Bono Regional Minister, Owusu Banahene.
After hearing the news about the re-enrollment of the teenage Mothers, she became elated and commended the GES, MoE, and other stakeholders in education for such a bold step.
She has therefore pledged to render help where necessary to ensure these girls are not left behind amongst their peers.
