Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed there has been 69 percent massive enrollment in the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
The Vice President disclosed this in a statement at Abiriw in the Eastern Region during the Ohum Festival celebration.
According to him, “in the first three years of this policy, we have seen enrollment in Ghana for free SHS education increased by 69℅; that is a very high level of increase and many of these children if it had not been for free SHS would have been seated at home.”
He noted that “the free SHS policy is so critical for the future of this country because the key to the development of any nation is the education of its people.”
If you have an educated population the evidence shows from economic history that countries that have educated their people have risen up their development ladder and this is why Nana Akufo-Addo was very keen on the introduction of the free SHS education, he told the chiefs and people of Abiriw during the festival.
He said the Akufo-Addo led government is bent on resolving challenges confronting the smooth implementation of the policy such as Infrastructure deficits.
