The North Tongu Member of Parliament, Hon Samuel Ablakwa last year said the National Democratic Congress party in their next term of office will maintain Free SHS policy but abolish the green and gold track system.
Speaking in an interview monitored by Educatioweb.com.gh, the immediate past Education Minister gave assurance the NDC party after being declared winners of the December 7, 2020 would not annulled the Free SHS policy.
Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa however said the 2020 flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama would have rescinded the double-track system because it disrupts the quality of education.
“NDC government will not cancel Free Senior High School (Free SHS). What we will cancel is double track. We think it’s horrible, it’s leading to truancy and affects contact hours, Mahama has said it will be annulled,” he stated.
He noted that the green and gold track affects contact hours and leads to truancy since some students will be in school while others are at home.
