i am told that constitutionally this year 2005

government must implement the

Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE) policy

where every child in Ghana irrespective of location will

have to be sent to school free up to the Juniour Secondary

school level.

in the first place, i doubt whether it will be done,

secondly i need legal advice on how to seek

an order of mandamus, compelling the government

to make sure they achieve it......

the last thing i heard on education was that the

government wants to change the name of the system

from Juniour Secondary School to Juniour High School

then i asked .....SO THAT WHAT? :o

what is important is to get the kids in classrooms and get them

educated...not with british and american examples

but with practical ghanaian situations

You can take anyone to court.

The point is will you win?

If you are convinced you have a point and it is in the law for whatever argument then you may get counsel willing to take on this monumental task.

Even in the UK we say the law is an ass, I cannot begin to comprehend what the law in Ghana could turn out to be for you at this juncture.

Something worse than an ass??

GLY,

Where are you located? Accra?

Don't you have any classmates who are lawyers?

I am sure some of them might consider taking on an issue like this.

Offer to pay them something and one or more can get the ball rolling for you. I would suggest you give one of your friends ¢1 million or ¢2 million. That should get you some valuable time. They may be willing to guide you through the process.

There is also the option of contacting your parliamentarian, and asking his help in this matter. While they are there to make laws, I suspect some may actually be interested in finding out if the law they are supposed to have passed is being followed.

We have the tendency to dump on these politicians. And granted, sometimes, it is hard to respect the legislative body, given the things we see some engage in. It is however not impossible to find a few who actually have the welfare of the state in mind, and who will work for it.

By the way, how are you doing?

In Ghana the law will be a goat, I think. :unsure:

That is one animal that exists in all parts of the country. The antics of a goat are surely familiar to all. From the cute prancing of a kiddy goat, to the sometimes destructive tendencies of the mature one, it is still an animal that we seek to control.

Bottom line, sometimes we are successful, sometimes we fail.

As we look on and wonder about the goat, so do we the law.

Couldn’t have agreed with you more on ur note above.

I think if they lay down sound educational policies to facilitate this new Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE) policy it will work.

Hey don’t forget Otumfuo is already at work. B)

i get mad when i think of education in ghana

for the past ten years

the syllabi at the various stages have changed

almost on yearly basis, the examination standards have altered

examinations have leaked, but for hipc most

kids would not have had schools

and you talk about OTUMFUOR?

WHO IS HE? THE ONE WHO COLLECTS MY TAX

WITH THE PROMISE OF DEVELOPIMNG THIS NATION?

THE ONE IN WHOM I INVESTED MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION

OVER THE EARTH BY WAY OF VOTE SO THAT

HE COULD EXERCISE IT FOR ME?

CERTAINLY NOT....

I DONT CARE ABOUT OTUMFUOR OR YAA NAA, I CARE ABOUT

THE PEOPLE WWHO ARE FED FAT WITH OUR TAXES SO THAT

THEY CAN THINK AND ACT ON BEHALF OF ALL OF US

THEY BETTER START DOING SOMETHING BEFORE

SOME OF US BEGIN HAVING IDEAS

Are you a coupist?

I like your points about free education though. For someone who was never sacked from school as a child, but felt my friends who were sacked were getting the best of the cherry. because they have been let off to go and play. I actually wished and resented the headmistress for not mentioning my name.

Today, I understand, I was one of the small minority who had it fairly easy going through school.

There are many many talented people in this country who dont have any chance to ever actualise themselves if education is not made free for them.

GLY, I will support your suit with some funds if you need the help.

no i am npot a coupist

like i have said, i believe

in using every legal option

to persistently, pressure government

to do the right thing and the right thing

is what is written in the consttitution

FREE EDUCATION UP TO JSS BY 2005

thanks for the suppot, you will

hear from me on that. i shall give u a call.

the only way out for government

is to try a constitutional amendement

but thank Goodness they dont have the numbers

when WE go to court, they may try to pack

the courts with their judges as they di to TSIKATA

but thank God, free education is a product with inelastic demand

sadly,THEY ALL WENT TO SCHOOL FREE

GLY,

Are you beginning to sound angry? A little passion is good for any cause. Anger on the other hand will not do it. Like Goody, I will be willing to throw a couple of cedis into the pot, if that is what it will take to get some meaningful action on behalf of the many who may otherwise do without.

Goody, cutting school wasn't all that. I haven't forgotten the time my mother chased me down the street, and up the hill for a mile, right back into a classroom I had just vacated. This was all because I got into a spitiing contest with the teacher. My mother was not the kind to let me win.

I am still hurting from some of these experiences. I haven't forgotten my best friend asking, "XXXXX, was it worth it, running out of class and having your mother chase you right back in?" while everyone was laughing at me. :tears:

You are right. I look back now, and see that I was lucky.

GLY, leave me a PM when this action you are thinking of takes shape.

Nana K, i do not have any beef against the

eminent One. i just have not paid my tax to him

and he is not responsible for it.

i'd rather go for those who have my taxes. the funny

part is that, each year, they claim, the exceed the tax target

they have also reduced their debt service (due to HIPC), yet

common education koraaaa they cant provide.
