At a time when some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are expressing gloom over the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, the Flagbearer for the Liberal Party of Ghana Kofi Akpaloo has commended President Akufo-Addo and the NPP for the bold step taken to implement the flagship policy.
According to Mr. Akpaloo, he is also bent on bringing up innovations to improve the policy.
He said during his administration, there would be new innovations into the Free Senior School policy if he becomes President of Ghana in 2021.
“Free Senior High School education has come to stay. LPG will bring up new innovations to support and lift the policy to another level.”
“LPG is committed to improving education that is why am pleading with all Ghanaians to vote for Liberal Party of Ghana(LPG) in the upcoming coming 2020 elections,’’ Kofi Akpaloo told Kwaku Owusu Adjei on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
However, Kofi Akpaloo says his government “would implement it better”.
The academic calendar was modified to incorporate a double-track (gold and green) system where students of the same academic year alternated their start date.
The new programme saw students on the gold track in school, while the green track students waited their turn at starting the same academic year during the vacation of the gold track students. This system was widely criticized by many Ghanaians and civil society groups.
