Maxwell Opoku-Agyemang, the acting Director of the Ghana School of Law states a three-track system of teaching put in place will ensure that the more than 1,000 students who passed the entrance examinations this year would be properly offered without congestion in classrooms.
According to him, Covid-19 has shown that fewer students can be taught at any given time without jeopardizing top quality in class.
He told an Accra-Based station, TV3 that beyond the three-track system, the Institution is undertaking some reforms to guarantee its GIMPA and also Kumasi campuses have certified lecturers to handle the various programs.
He also disclosed that management of the institution walked a financial tightrope in 2014 due to the mass failure of students in the entry examinations.
He said the school employed much more lecturers in anticipation of admitting some 500 students.
Because of this, there were even more lecturers to instruct only 128 students, plus a 90 percent cut in the budget for the school indicated meeting financial commitments like settling of utility bills like water and electricity was a difficulty.
However, Mr Maxwell Opoku-Agyemang stated the reforms will not end agitations in the school. “Human beings and agitations I don’t know when it will come to an end. It started from Adam’s times. This won’t stop agitations because people have unreasonable expectations and they can agitate in a constitutional era. As a law school respecting law and procedure, we don’t have a problem.”
