The implementation of the Free SHS program in 2017, gave the opportunity to every qualified Ghanaian child to be in school. School Fees no longer became an impediment.
The increase in enrollment numbers in 2018, witnessed the introduction of the double track school calendar. This was to make sure that âno qualified Ghanaian child is left behindâ. Our future leaders cannot stay home and wait for all our infrastructure needs to be met before they can access secondary education. The double track school calendar, provides same quality of education to students at different times using same facility.
The government has not relented in its quest to increase infrastructure in the schools to eliminate the double track system. A promise the government still keeps.
Since 2017, the construction of over 804 new facilities have started.
Below is one of such facilities.
School: Jachie Pramso SHS, Ashanti region
Project: Single Storey Boys Dormitory
Status: finishing – Painting
fixing of door and windows
