Free SHS Policy Is Not Under The Purported Review – Gov't

The Free Senior High School education policy in Ghana was a government initiative introduced in the 2017 September Presidential administration of Nana Akufo-Addo.

The policy aims to take out the element of cost as a barrier to education. Under this policy, ever Ghanaian child who attains the pass mark, as agreed for the year by Ghana Education Service Council, will enjoy a three-year scholarship for secondary education.

Speculation that the free Senior High School (SHS) program is being reviewed has been refuted by the Ministry of Education. The administration was reportedly reviewing the scheme, according to earlier claims in a portion of the media.

However, in a statement released on Friday, July 22, the ministry's public relations officer, Kwasi Kwarteng, stated: "The Ministry's attention has been drawn to some publications making the rounds which suggest an ongoing review of the Free SHS policy by the GES."

According to the report, the study in question will assess how much parents can afford to pay in relation to the policy. For the avoidance of doubt, the Free SHS policy is not the subject of the alleged review.
