The government of Ghana, under the Secondary Education Improvement Project (SEIP), has negotiated an additional $40m from the World Bank to support the Free Senior High School (SHS) Policy, the Minister of Education has said.
A law to protect the government’s flagship Free SHS policy is in the offing, president Nana Addo DankwaAkufo-Addo has said.
The about 196,000 first year students expected to enroll are made up both boarding and day students.
The Free Senior High School (SHS) policy will enter its third year in September, and per the B&FT’s analysis, the total student population in secondary schools across the country could hit over one million, making it the highest since independence.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has once again justified his decision to kickstart the ‘Free SHS’ policy – a policy that was his major campaign message in the 2016 elections, a few months after he was voted into power.
