The Ghana Education Service (GES) has issued a strong warning to all heads of second cycle schools in Ghana over the issuance of unapproved prospectus and the selling of government items to form one students.

In a communique issued by the GES, the organization has cautioned all heads of schools against the practice of issuing unapproved prospectus to parents and students.
