Low quality Free SHS graduates under production is the latest view of the Member of Parliament for Klottey-Korley Constituency, Hon. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings.
according to the MP, the Free Senior High School policy introduced by the current government has the tendency to reduce the quality of graduates secondary schools churn out.
She made this known at the Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN) orientation and handing over ceremony at Ho in the Volta region for the NDC in the Region.
She asserted that, education was more of quality which the Free SHS lacks. Low quality Free SHS graduates is the outcome of governments policy on education at the second cycle level.
“When they have the education, the teachers are not enough to teach them so they don’t get the education of quality they need,” she said.
Hon. Zenator holds the view that, infrastructure development is key to providing quality education and the need to build the capacity of the essential human resource (Teachers) was equally paramount if students are to enjoy quality education at all.
“A lot of schools have been left hanging, the completion of these schools has not been happening,” she said.
She added that, with the current system, not all students in second cycle institutions can be in school at the same time. She also indicated that a fully progressive free education system was the best way to go as it will afford government the chance to improve and provide the essential structures to accommodate the huge numbers.
She pointed out that, the absence of the needed infrastructure as well as teachers for second cycle schools in Ghana have affected the level of quality teaching and learning.
