A lecturer with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, (KNUST), Dr. Richard Tia has expressed fears that government may soon practice triple track system.
According to Dr. Tia, due to poor planning and executions , the third anniversary of the free SHS will compel government to do triple track as a result of an expected balloon number of students.
Speaking to the Media Dr. Tia said “By the third year we might have to do a triple-track system. We have not yet started feeling its impact on the tertiary institutions.
He has therefore admonished government to do due diligence to implement the policy and not to score political points.
”We need a complete rethink. Government should not adopt the posture of “we will do whatever it takes to implement free SHS to shame our enemies and critics even if it collapses the economy or affects the quality of education”. Dr Richard Tia has noted.
He further added that “A promise conceived on a campaign platform on the spur of the moment as a boy promises a girl marriage at the height of a rather passionate encounter, the full ramifications of the policy were not fully thought-out”
“Just a year into it we are rolling out a double-track system. Governments come and go but this country remains. We need a complete rethink!” he said.
