Free SHS 'Tough' But 'Good Job Done': Ablakwa

Free SHS 'Tough' But 'Good Job Done': Ablakwa

The Member of Parliament for Jaman North in the Brong Ahafo region and Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Education, Steven Siaka, has slammed the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for criticizing the free SHS policy.

He said it was important for beneficiaries of the policy to take their studies seriously to justify the government's investment in them, saying, "If you fail to learn because you are paying nothing, you will have yourselves to blame at the end".

Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo has stated that he and many other world leaders were anxious over the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Free SHS programme, which is the government's flagship policy started on Monday, 11 September as first-year students who were successfully placed in various SHSs reported to officially register.

"But, we are Africans, and I have to come and see him for myself how he was and I'm very delighted to see that he came back very vigorous and as always very engaged on the issues of our day".

Alhaji Cambodia said the free SHS would pave way for qualified students who would have had their education terminated at the JHS level due to financial constraints to further to the SHS.

"The Minority is not opposed to Free SHS. That is why the government has made a decision to absorb all SHS fees that have been agreed between the Ghana Education Service (GES) Council and the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS)", President Akufo-Addo said. We believe this is crucial in ensuring that we do not inadvertently encourage a permanent class divide, where a child from a background, whose parents are unable to afford junior high private school education, is pre-destined to be excluded from the top senior high schools in the country. "That is unconscionable, and potentially unsafe for social cohesion", he mentioned.

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa expressed gratitude to the Free SHS Implementation Committee, the GES Council, teacher unions and all stakeholders for their tireless efforts to make it possible. "We said "progressively free" because we were going to eventually cover all the students".

Currently, he observed, technical and vocational education delivery in Ghana was fragmented under 18 different ministries, each with different enabling acts and mandates.
