While commenting on the need for a review of the FSHS policy by the President, Nii Armah Addy, an Educationist has opined that the free education policy should have targeted the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET).

He argued that Ghana is a developing economy hence its focus should have been on TVET rather than the “English Grammar secondary schools.”

Mr. Addy continued to say that training more people in TVET would mean having the workforce to complement the infrastructural development in the country.

“If we were truly minded at the onset of the policy, we would have started with the TVET rather than the regular English Grammar secondary schools. We are a developing economy and in developing economies, you need a lot in infrastructural development. Which means that you need a lot of masons, plumbers, electricians; I mean what we call artisans.”

Mr. Nii Amarh further noted that, making TVET free would have made the programme more attractive.

“Again, we would have made that space so attractive that it becomes a choice rather than an option. And therefore, if we [government] had started, we would have built a critical mass of people or artisans who are minded about their work and have the ethics of work.”

Mr. Nii Armah Addy made this statement via a phone interview on A1 Radio Day Break Upper East Show with Mark Smith.
