“You Didn’t Think Deeply Before Introducing F-SHS” – Professor To Akuffo Addo
Professor Kwame Badu Antwi-Boasiako an educationist says the Nana Akufo-Addo led government did not think deeply before introducing the Free Senior High School policy.
Speaking at the 63rd Anniversary, Speech and Prize Giving Day Celebration at the Agona Swedru Secondary School he said, the Free Senior High School policy should not have been introduced now as it is very expensive to sustain the policy.
He observed that Senior High Schools in the Country today are encountering numerous challenges as a result of Free Senior High School policy, citing the lack of enough Classrooms, dormitories to accommodate the students which have made the students suffer.
He said, Teachers, are really suffering at the various Senior High Schools due to overload of work.
Prof. Kwame Badu Antwi-Boasiako questioned the quality of education being offered under the Free Senior High School policy.
She said, teachers in the School struggle before getting a place to sleep.
Mrs. Andam noted that the school’s land is being encroached by the Community Members hence appealed to the old students to support the school to build a fence wall.
She also appealed to the District Chief Executive for Agona East District Assembly to facilitate the completion of the school’s CHPS compounds which are being built by the assembly.
