Implement double-track at the Flagstaff House - Hannah Bissiw
Government has been urged to use its solution to decongest Senior High Schools (SHS) to curb the unemployment situation in the country.
Former Member of Parliament for Tano South, Hannah Bissiw said the policy should be piloted at the Flagstaff House if the Akufo-Addo led government is committed to creating jobs for the youth.
Dubbed: double-track system, the policy splits a class into two streams with one starting while the other waits.
So a General Arts class of say 98 students will be divided to have a first batch of 46 students known as the Green Track and the other known as the Gold Track.
Green Track has begun the academic year while the Gold Track will replace them on November 8, 2018. The double track is being implemented in at least 400 out of more than 670 public schools.
The policy has become necessary because government does not have enough infrastructure to accommodate the huge enrollment rates since it implemented its free SHS policy.
But on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, Hannah Bissiw said the double-track system at the seat of government will solve the unemployment situation in Ghana.
She explained that the many policy advisers at the Flagstaff House after serving for three months should be asked to go home so that new people can be employed.
This move, Hannah Bissiw believes could give a lot of unemployed youth the opportunity to serve in government.
