Free Senior High School Policy was introduced by President Akuffo Addo in September, 2017 and this has increased enrollment since. In 2017, when Free SHS Policy started it covered only the first year students. In 2018, the policy covered the first and second year students of SHS and September this year it is expected to cover all SHS students.The policy has been funded form Ghana’s oil proceeds and people are raising questions about its sustainability.
A lot of Ghanaians straightnewsonline interviewed like the policy and are suggesting that a bill is passed to make it permanent in Ghana so that irrespective of any government that comes to power it will be sustained.
Less than 24 hours ago the President of Ghana tweeted on his page the following;
“Today, as a result of handwork, I am proud to be able to state that Ghana is one of the countries in the world where public education is now free from basic school to senior high school. From September this year, all students in our public senior high schools will be covered by Free SHS Policy. We are making sure that poverty is no longer an excuse for any Ghanaian child not to reach their full potential, and am happy that is under my time as President of the Republic that this feat has been chalked”.
