Former President John Mahama has stated that government’s seeming deliberate devotion to the free Senior High School policy was going to end up damaging the credibility of public sector secondary education in the country.
He made predictions that parents would soon start losing faith in the public senior high school system.
He said this would be easy because of the drop in quality with the introduction of the free SHS.
“What we are doing with this huge influx into the secondary school system due to the free SHS program.
It is going to affect the quality of the public schools. And soon we are going to find a system where people lose faith in public schools and everybody will pay to take their wards to private secondary schools. That is the danger we are talking about,” Mahama noted.
