The Government of Ghana is set to spell out the details of it’s flagship program; the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy.

The FSHS has so far been criticised by the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and some concerned Ghanaians.

Minister of Education, Dr. Mattew Opoku Prempeh will tomorrow Tuesday address several issues at the sector including the controversial double-track system when he takes his turn at the Meet-the-Press in Accra.

President Akufo-Addo over the weekend sought to explain how the double track education system will be ran; the Minister, according to information gathered will further give more details particularly on the issue of funding the laudable policy.

The free SHS policy which was a major campaign promise of the current government in 2012 an 2016 respectively, was rolled out in September 2017 with over 400, 000 beneficiaries.

It has however been characterized by challenges ranging from the unavailability of accommodation, furniture, poor feeding to lack of basic amenities at the implementing institutions.

Some members of the current government including Dr Kwame Amoako Tuffuor, have called on government to take pragmatic steps in addressing challenges the programme is saddled with citing his experience during a visit to one of the schools.

However, after listening to concerns and suggestions, the government will put all matter to rest as President Akufo-Addo is committed to ensure every child is educated.
