Free SHS money to hit schools’ accounts Friday
Deputy Minister of Education Dr. Yaw Adu-Twum has disclosed that the funds for the implementation of government’s flagship education policy—Free SHS—will be released to all schools by Friday.
“Your money will come to you. We have no reason to keep your money. We are making every effort….and we will not ask you to come for your cheques…we will send it to your banks. So don’t worry the money will hit your accounts,” assured Adu-Twum at the 55th National Conference of Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools in Ho Wednesday.
Meanwhile, CHASS is demanding a blue print for the implementation of the policy
The blueprint, according to the President of CHASS, Cecilia Kwakye Cofie would guide school heads to effectively implement the ambitious policy in all public schools.
Madam, Kwakye Cofie made the comment while addressing the 55th national conference of CHASS ongoing at the Mawuli School in Ho in the Volta region.
She indicated that the blueprint referred to as the ‘free SHS bible’ will help school authorities not to overstep their bounds in ensuring the success of the policy.
Over 400,000 prospective SHS students are expected to benefit from the flagship policy which kick starts next week.
