GNAT requests a national dialogue on Free SHS

GNAT - Rapid News GH

A national discussion to examine the Free Senior High School (SHS) Program is being called for by the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT).

In order to sustain the Program, according to the Association, the evaluation should include business entities, parent-teacher associations (PTAs), and other stakeholders.

On August 14, General Secretary of GNAT Thomas Musah Tanko remarked that such a debate would look at ways to pay for the policy.

“What we are saying is, let’s have that particular discussion, let’s know how we fund it,” he said.

“The method of funding might include old guys’ donations, PTA donations, returns on investments, and special levies, let’s see what we can do.

September 2017 saw the introduction of free SHS.

Enrollment at the SHS level increased as a result of the policy.

But because most schools lacked suitable facilities, the double track was introduced as a shift system.

The majority of schools are currently experiencing food shortages, and where food is available, the quality has been subpar.
