The National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has described as a “reckless educational policy” the double track system introduced by Akufo-Addo’s government to address the challenge with the Free Senior High School policy.
According to him, the double track system policy which will be implemented this September to ensure every student have equal access to secondary education is without any planning.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, Kofi Adams equated the double track system to the shift system which was abolished by the NDC government under late President Professor Evans Atta Mills.
He explained that the shift system at the time introduced truancy at the basic level.
He however wondered why Nana Addo’s government is bringing back such a system in the name of double track system at the secondary level to mess the educational sector up.
“Nana Addo’s government is messing education up . . . we are implementing reckless educational policy without any planning . . . today we have a government that is re-introducing such a system at the secondary level,” he asserted.
He reiterated that nothing seem to work in the country as it is not only the education sector which is being messed up, but the banking sector as well as the rising rate of unemployment and fuel price hikes, destabilizing a lot of people’s pockets.
“Today, GETFund cannot even award contracts or even pay contractors because the government has introduced a policy which is taking every contract. So things are not being done right and our focus should be on such things in the country and let Ghanaians know,” he claimed.
