The Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum who suggested the double-track system to President Nana-Addo has debunked claims he has enrolled his son in one of the expensive Kumasi-based private Senior High School in Ghana.
His comment comes after the Daily Post newspaper in a Wednesday publication sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh said the Minister had registered his son in the plush International Community School situated at Pakyi, near Kumasi.
“The Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the man who prides himself on running the best ever public-funded second cycle education in the world, has enrolled his son in a private second cycle institution,” the newspaper stated.
But the Bosomtwe Member of Parliament reacting to the report on Sunday at the Minister’s Press briefing said he has no son that is qualified to be enrolled in a Senior High School, yet for him to register him at a private SHS.
“I think politics have taken a new look, my son should never be part of my political career and I don’t even have a son old enough to be in a Senior High School, we have the best SHSs in the public sector,” Adutwum angrily told joutnalists.
According to the Education Minister, there are the best Senior High Schools in the public sector and that he would not consider enrolment for his son at any private institution citing that his son is not old enough to be in a Senior High School.
