The Director of the School of Communications, Dr Margaret Amoakohene has stated at a press conference in Accra that it is very possible to have a quality yet free educational system in Ghana. Dr Amoakohene’s remarks were in support of the NPP’s Free Senior High School Policy.
Dr. Amoakohene, herself a beneficiary of Nkrumah’s free northern educational policy said that cost should not be allowed to be an inhibitor to access quality education, citing examples of functional quality educational systems in the western world.
Dr Amoakohene’s remarks were supported by Dr. Zibilim Iddi, Political Science lecturer also at the University of Ghana, who insisted that the free nature of the scheme did not mean that the service provided or its beneficiaries would be cheap, citing the President and First Lady as beneficiaries of free education who were currently in the most prominent positions of Ghanaian society.
Dr Kingsley Nyarko also a lecturer from the University of Ghana, Psychology Department revealed that the Free SHS program recognized the need for investment into diverse programs of study and as such had made provision for Technical and vocational needs of JHS graduates.
These statements were made at a Press Conference held by lecturers in support of the NPP’s Free Senior High School policy.
