“I can assure the nation that, within the next two or three years, double track will cease - Nsowah"
Nsaowah revealed that the he was uncertain that they do that 100 percent but believed that the double track would be in just 100 schools.
The double track system was introduced by government following the sharp rise in enrollment after implementation of the Free Senior High School.
Unlike the single-track system, the new system was expected to divide the entire student body and staff into two different tracks.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Ada at the 80th Asafotufiami Festival on August 4, 2018, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said the introduction of the double-track system for SHSs in the 2018-2019 academic year would not destroy or disrupt the country's education system.
