C/R: Parents seeking SHS placement for wards stranded at internet cafes

Parents as well as prospective SHS students in the Central Region are completely devastated and confused over the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) as many are unable to complete the placement process. The Ghana Education Services (GES ) released a statement asking 2017 BECE candidates who did not get placement into the various government senior high schools to reapply to schools with vacancies. Onua FM’s Central Regional correspondent Kwame Kakarba has been monitoring event in the region and reports that parents and their wards are stranded in some internet cafes in the region. When Onua News visited some of the internet cafes where parents have trooped to check their wards placement, it was revealed that the website address -myjhsresult.net – that GES directed all to use to reapply has been down for days. At the Konel Internet Cafe in Cape Coast, its administrator Henry Arthur said out of 300 people who tried the site, only two were successful as at Monday afternoon. Frustration and anger were written on the faces of most parents who spoke to Onua News after sitting at the internet cafes for hours without success. They therefore called on WAEC to as a matter of urgency work on their system in order to avoid denying these children the opportunity to be enrolled. Meanwhile, after the Ghana Education Service discovered that over 150,000 qualified BECE candidates have still not been placed against its September 4 deadline, the service  has extended the deadline to Tuesday, September 5, 2017 .
