Akufo-Addo's Free SHS Negativities Ghanaians Do Not Know About

The Free Senior High School policy in Ghana was a government initiative introduced in September 2017 by the government of president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The policy's origination began as part of the president's presidential campaign promise during the 2016 general elections.

What do you know about the policy?

The policy's core themes of access, equity and equality fullfil the United Nations modified Sustainable Development Goals where member countries amalgamate those themes in their Educational systems to certify adequate learning experiences for learners, but for Ghana, it seems the reverse.

Respective politicians and social workers have had their portions of the policy to help it survive, but it seems to be defying all techniques and showing it's horrible face.

The Demography of the Policy and it's inequality.

Although the incentive is accessible for all high school students, the demographic the policy aimed to benefit the greatest were those in the rural and disadvantaged communities.

Though the government aimed but most regions for which the policy was made to benefit do not enjoy it, as while some still lacked in suitable equipment others had an abundance of it.

The predisposing factor of the Free Senior High School is the Double Track System.

In 2018, president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his board of governance introduced another initiative as part of the Free Senior High School Policy and That's The Double Track System.

The policy has two phases, the Green Track and the Gold Track. The Green Track Students begin a semester by spending few days in school and then return home giving way for Gold Track students to also learn on campus.

This shift system predisposes female Students to predators making teenage pregnancy common among them, it lessens the contact period of students with teachers as a result poor learning habits among Students and has a lot of challenges.

For instance, form two Gold Track students have just returned home to spend 93 days at home after 35 working days on campus. What results will that yield in Students?
