Multiple award winning journalist, Kwami Sefa Kayi has asked the ruling government to review it’s Free SHS policy.
He noted that after the policy has been ran for about 5 years now it’s about time government and stakeholders in the education sector sit and deliberate about the way forward as far as the Free SHS is concerned.
Kwami Sefa mentioned that parents who are financially sound should cater for the boarding fees and other expenses of their wards and also make purchase of school items including school uniform and past questions for final years students.
“I don’t understand why after 4 or 5 years of free SHS, it has not been reviewed . . . How can someone who attends Achimota (for instance) and parents stay at East Legon or airport be made not to pay school fees? How? We can make tuition free but charge those at boarding houses.
“All I’m asking is, it’s been five years let’s do a review . . . My opinion is; pay for tuition, exam fee, library fee etc but those who want boarding school must pay”, he stated.
