Students are expected to start wearing the new school uniform from next academic year, 2019 – 2020.

Theo Acheampong OfeiJust hope our textile manufacturers have been informed earlier to enable them build enough capacity to produce it locally. No imports of the finished fabric should be allowed inLike · Reply ·

Patrick Aboagyethis change is really good and it has come in at the right time, at the time the govnt is trying to bring in some reforms that will enhance the performance of our brothers and sisters at the public sch.
the old uniform pose some kind of inferiority complex on the students.
so lets embrace this new uniform and encourage the govnt to do more to enhance the performance as wellLike · Reply · 1h
Prince Clement AddoHow will a simple change in uniform reduce or eliminate what you termed inferiority complex? Does it mean the kind of uniform in public schools is cheap, unacceptable or inferior compared to those in private schools? Is there any scientific research providing such proof? Or that this won’t be seen as a public school uniform just as the existing one?
While I am not against whatever change or rebranding is happening in the education sector in general, I am pretty sure the nation needs rethinking and serious prioritization of issues.
I wish GES, government and all stakeholders well especially parents who need to buy these new uniforms, kids whose moral will be lowered and can’t fit among their peers if they cannot afford the new uniforms and the traders who do not have a fading-time to clear the old materials from their shops.Like · Reply · 29m
