The government through the Ministry of Education’s Ghana Education Service is being advised to discontinue the wholesale admission and progression of students under the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) programme. This would enhance the quality of the students who pass through the programme.

It would also ensure that only students who are committed to serious academic progression would be allowed into the senior high school under government financial support.

These sentiments were shared by a Former Upper East Regional Minister, Rockson Bukari. He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show at his residence in Gambibgo in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region yesterday, Friday, July 1, 2022.

“The free Senior High School is okay but there should be a cut-off grade. If you say a wholesale, those who have not passed properly and go to the secondary school, they bring about indiscipline. When you get grade 40 and you go to secondary school you are not prepared to learn. So there should be a cut-off point.”

“That is why there are so many bad things happening in our schools. It is not fine. Let us be frank with ourselves. It is unfortunate and some of us are sad,” he said.
