Article 25 (1) of Ghana’s constitution stipulates that; “All persons shall have the right to equal educational opportunities and facilities with a view to achieving the full realization of that right”.
Governments over the years have initiated policies to help deal with challenges in the country's educational sector with the latest breakthrough being the implementation of the "Free Senior High School" policy by the current administration as enshrined in the constitution of Ghana.
The erstwhile Mahama administration also introduced "Free Day Senior High School" on a pilot basis dubbed, the "E-Block" and went ahead to erect some school infrastructures to that effect.
The government was criticized by their political rivals for siting those projects far away from some of the communities where access to transportation is problematic.
Mr George Ayisi was speaking on TV3's Newday show on Thursday, October 21, 2021, when commenting on complaints by Chiefs in some communities who are calling on the completion of stalled educational infrastructures in their communities.
" Honestly I think the E-Block agenda by former President Mahama is a fantastic idea but our challenge has always been the location of some of these projects. Some are sited some kilometres away from the communities that are intended to benefit" he said.
Pressure is mounting on the current government to complete some educational infrastructures inherited from the previous government.
One of the major issues that confront this country has been the abandonment of projects by governments over the years.
