The student factor is critical to the success of Free SHS policy – Retired Educationist

A retired Educationist and Proprietress of Jesus Cares International School in Obuasi, Dr. Mrs. Amina Achiaa Asiedu- Amoah has stated that the key to the success of the Free Senior High School introduced by the Government in 2017 is the role of the students.

She was speaking with the media at the sidelines of the 3rd Awards and Graduation ceremony of the school in Obuasi. The theme for the event was “Academic Excellence; the role of the students in national development.”

Dr. Asiedu-Amoah said students who are at the center of the Free Senior High School must appreciate their role in making the program a success. She said, ” while Government is doing its best to finance their education, students have the responsibility to learn hard to make sure the program achieves its intended purpose which is to improve access and quality of education”.

Dr. Amina Asiedu-Amoah who retired as the Municipal Director of Education in Ejisu called on stakeholders involved in education to collaborate effectively to improve academic performances in schools.

On the success chalked by the School, she said the school has achieved academic laurels since its establishment in 2000 thanks to the discipline, coordination, interpersonal relationship, and excellent communication among all the stakeholders involved in the running of the school.

She said for a school to maintain higher educational standards, it is incumbent on its management to involve parents in key decision-making.

Master Isaac Quansah who emerged as the Overall Best teacher attributed his success to his commitment and dedication to get the best out of the pupils he teaches.

He offered advice to up-and-coming teachers especially at private schools to acknowledge the role they play in the future of their students and work hard to bring the best out of them.
