Coalition throws weight behind Double-Track System
The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition is calling on all well-meaning Ghanaians to fully throw their weight behind government as it begins the implementation of the Double Track system next week for first year students of selected senior high schools in the country.
The Coalition says this is not the time to apportion blame because the design and consultative stages of the double track policy is over.
“Any media discourse aimed at finding fault or apportioning blame should be discouraged. Let us support the Ghana Education Service to implement the policy of the Government of Ghana”, the Coalition said in a Press Statement signed by its Chairman, Bright Appiah.
The Statement implored all stakeholders with divergent opinions on the policy, including GNECC, to get on board and support government at this critical roll out stage.
“The success or failure of the policy does not only depends on government and civil society. Parents, the media and every relevant stakeholder has a role to play in ensuring its success because it affects our children.”
“Stakeholders, especially the media houses should encourage and assist parents and students by directing them to the various regional help desks set up by the Ghana Education Service to resolve any emerging issue related to the placement process.”
The Coalition said it would undertake a review of the policy at the end of the first semester and wished the Ghana Education Service a successful double track SHS policy implementation
