The Free SHS policy cannot be implemented without the double-track system according to Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum the Deputy Education Minister in charge of Basic & Secondary Education.
The Deputy Minister was reacting to the fact that the opposition National Democratic Congress says they will review the double-track system when they come back to power.
Dr Adutwum who was speaking in an interview on Neat FM said there can be no free SHS without the double-track system and if the NDC wants to scrap it, then they lack understanding.
“If you don’t like the double track, you can’t do the free SHS unless in some 20 years to come . . . and so if you claim you like the free SHS but not the double-track system then you lack understanding . . . where will they accommodate the rest of the students after they scrap the double-track system. If you are against the double-track system then you don’t really know how the system works,” he said.
