Free SHS needs to be reviewed to sustain it – Nortsu Kotoe

The Minority representatives on Parliament’s Education Committee is calling for an immediate review of the Free Senior High School policy.

“Our call is that let’s sit down with all stakeholders and review the programme.

“And sustaining it is very, very important so how do we cut costs so that we will be able to sustain it and everybody who qualifies to be in senior high school can have access to free senior high school education,” he added.

Clement Apaak, also raised concerns with the Free SHS policy.

“Since the introduction of the Free Senior High School policy, those of us in the sector have noticed visibly the lack of attention that, hitherto, was being paid to basic education.”

 

Apaak added that “we ought to be doing more to ensure that the basic sector of our educational system is robust and fit for purpose.”
