Sefa Kayi, an Ace Broadcaster, wants to examine the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy by enabling wealthy parents to foot the bill for their children’s schooling.
Peace FM Kokrokoo program presenter said that the government should begin examining the FREE SHS policy after five years.
If the policy is re-evaluated, says Kwami Sefa-kayi, those most in need will be able to access it, while others with the means to pay will be able to do so.
Since the Free SHS program was started five years ago, I’m not sure why we haven’t reevaluated it. When a kid attends Achimota, how can someone who lives in East Legon be compelled to pay school fees?
In my view, the government should cover tuition, library costs, and other costs, but boarding school students should be responsible for their own expenditures. What is the best way for the government to acquire school supplies, such as uniforms, textbooks, and old exams? Have you ever come across any? Is it possible to purchase earlier questions? he asked.
The Free SHS policy was implemented in 2017 and many pupils were able to benefit from it. However, there have been concerns about the quality of instruction.
