During a press conference in Accra, said the tentative measure designed to contain the huge numbers of the ‘Free SHS’ policy will take a few years to end and that ending it sooner than later will cost the government to spend about GHS1.5 billion.

In the press conference, the Minister said the money will be spent on infrastructure in senior high schools across the country.

“We are going to live within government’s promise of five to seven years to eliminate double-track. There is something called logic and people are trying as much as possible to prove that Free SHS is of poor quality.”

“And soon and very soon, schools will be back on single-track. The President has committed to that, and he is doing exactly that. Talking about infrastructure, ¢1.5 billion [is] potentially available for school construction have,” he told the media.

The Education Minister also announced that government will soon digitize the education sector to track the performance of students and schools across Ghana.

The double-track system was introduced in the wake of government’s flagship Free Senior High School policy which led to an explosion in enrolment numbers.
