According to the statement, management of the Ghana Education explained that, as of Friday, 10th December, 2021, 80% of the 62,000 laptops for Senior High School teachers have been delivered across the regions. This phase is expected to be completed on the 17th of December, 2021.
GES further said, the Phase 2 and 3 for the Junior High and Primary schools will commence in January 2022 when schools re-open.
