|Audio Attachment:Listen to Nana Addo on the Education sector|
President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has reiterated the commitment of his government to implement its free Senior High School policy.
Addressing the nation on the floor of Parliament, the President directed a message to critics of the free SHS initiative saying if they think he's doing things in a haste, then "I'm in a hurry to ensure that every child born in this country attend school from kindergarten to Senior High School. In other words, that is the basic education that each child is required to receive. We intend to reform the basic school curricula with emphasis on literacy, numeracy and creative skills. And just in case, there's anyone left in this country who has not heard yet, free SHS starts with the 2017/2018 entrants..."
President Nana Addo told the House that the government is fully prepared and has the blueprints to roll out the free SHS programme.
"Mr. Speaker, the success of all our plans and all aspirations depends on our ability to educate our young people and provide the opportunity for lifelong education to the adult population. Mr. Speaker, it is not an original statement but it is a true statement. Education is the key. Education holds the key to the rapid development of our country. It holds the key to a better understanding and accommodation without environment. It equips us with the skills required to deal with the world. Education holds the key to the prosperous and a happy Ghana we all want and deserve."
