Don’t Even Think Of Touching F-SHS – Child Right Int’l Boss To Gov’t
Executive Director of Child Right International, Mr Bright Appiah, has urged the government to maintain its Free SHS programme despite some economic challenges in recent times.
He said the flagship programme has been of help to many who couldn’t have afforded education over the years.
Speaking on Ashh FM’s morning show, Mr Bright Appiah reiterated the benefits of the programme for the needy but brilliant children across the country.
“The statistics are there to show,” he said.
The government has suggested that it will review the Free SHS programme among other policies due to financial challenges the country is facing – many feared the educational policy will be cancelled.
But Bright Appiah said an annulment of the policy will be disastrous.
“They [government] shouldn’t even think about that at all. If there is a need to amend the policy, they should,” he said.
