‘Double-track system was poorly thought-through ‘- Franklin Cudjoe
Executive Director for IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has described as premature, government’s decision to implement the double-track system in the various Senior High Schools.
President Nana Akufo-Addo has confirmed that from September 2018, his government will implement the double track System for new entrants into the country’s public Senior High Schools.
This new system is expected to reduce class sizes and increase contact hours Speaking on Citi TV’s/FM’s News Analysis Programme The Big Issue, Mr. Cudjoe said the policy was not carefully thought-through before being rolled out.
“The policy is zero analysis-backed and poorly thought-through… The education on the double track system needs to be done and decentralized properly so parents can understand, not by the government communicators, some of whom don’t seem to understand it.”
