A retired Educationist, Robert Ajene says he supports the government Free Senior High School (FSHS) system to the hilt.

He said there is access for many more children to go to the senior high school unlike before. Parents, according to him, did not have to worry much because they are not paying fees at that level.

Robert Ajene spoke on Day Break Upper East Show on A1 Radio.

“I support the free senior high school system to the hilt; why? There’s access for many more people to go there and so it is different from before. Now parents did not have to worry much because they’re not paying.”

He disagreed with people who say they should have been enough infrastructure first before the policy was rolled out.

“There are some people who say there should have been the infrastructure before the schools were declared usable as free senior high schools. I don’t agree with that because the history we have in this country, 60 if not 70% of our senior high schools or what we were calling secondary schools, they didn’t just build a secondary school today, finished and open it. We inherited structures. And if you look at the 1987 system all JHS’s were converted into senior high schools.”

Mr Ajene is calling for Ghanaians to come together and advise the government on the way to go.

“Let’s now sit up and advise the government, we have accepted the free senior high school system, have a drastic infrastructural development which will include classrooms, teachers’ residence, students’ residence, libraries etc.”

He attributed the infrastructural challenges many schools are faced with to leadership problem.

“We just open the schools and forget about them and then the major problem is feeding. The headmasters were going to the market to buy food. Now everything has to come from Accra. As for that one I don’t agree with it,” he added.
