Free SHS most revolutionary policy – Education Minister
The Minister of Education, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has said the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy is the single most revolutionary policy Ghana has ever seen.
According to him, this programme will set the country on the path of prosperity and progress.
Speaking during the launch of the programme on Tuesday at West African Secondary School (WASS) in Accra on Tuesday, Dr Opoku Prempeh said: “This morning we are gathered here in the name of the, arguably, most exciting, most far-reaching and most revolutionary policy in a generation in this country, and I am honoured to stand before you to perform a role in this launch.
“Six decades ago this country attained formal independence, the nation’s founders believed in her destinies and set it on the path of progress and prosperity. Today we are taking an important step on that journey. From today onwards, no child will ever be denied senior high school education simply because his or her family is unable to afford it. This is what the Free SHS policy is about.”
