Parliament has suspended the plenary consideration of the new Public Education Bill, 2020 to all the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and other stakeholders in academia to study and make inputs to the bill.

The suspension will also allow UTAG and the stakeholders such as the Students Representative Council (SRC) to assess whether the previous inputs they made into the Bill had been incorporated or not.

They are to submit their concerns to the Education Committee of Parliament by Tuesday, December 22, 2020 after which the Bill will be considered at the Plenary prior to its passage.

The Chairman of the Education Committee, Mr William Quaitoo, who made this known to the press outside Parliament today, said the suspension of the Bill at the plenary came after what he described as a “more powerful source beyond the Education Committee” met the stakeholders in the morning today.
