The majority of leaders in Parliament has defended the government’s plans of switching the Senior High School calendar into a double-track semester system.
Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu said the growing numbers of students accompanied with the free SHS policy has demanded that strategies need to be developed to make sure that all the students get right of entry to tuition without any compromise on the quality of education.
The majority of leaders told the media on Wednesday, that it would not be effective to register a lot of pupils to teach them.
He asked that there is a huge increase in the number of Senior High School students and if they have to open them up for serious teaching, are they going to crowd all of them into one classroom and teach them professionally.
He further explained that the Education Ministry was faced with the choice of either the double-track system or crowding all the students and they decided to go for the earlier because it will be well-organized.
He said that he think that it is exactly correct if they open it up to double-tracking system so all the children could be accommodated and given the related tutorials.
He emphasized that the government would never be engage in any activity that will lead to the reduction of the quality of education in the Senior High level. He told the media that they do not want any half-half approach to education,
The comments of legislator came at the back of the argument that has hit the decision of government to take on the double-track system.
