"Issues surrounding free SHS will be solved if elected president" – Mahama assures

Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has stated that his next government will give top priority to resolving the issues surrounding the implementation of the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy if voted into power.


This comes after some Ghanaians called on the flagbearer to provide measures on how free SHS will be executed and funded.


John Dramani Mahama reveals his plans to boost the education sector when he met some teacher unions, including Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers.


He said he would hold a stakeholder forum on education in his first 100 days as president to solicit inputs on how to improve and deliver quality education.


“Within the first 100 days of me becoming president, we will hold a stakeholder dialogue on education. It will have as part of its focus the implementational bottlenecks of the Free SHS, but it is also going to deal with how we can improve financing and teaching and learning at the basic school level and so at that stakeholder’s engagement, NAGRAT, GNAT, parents, students, educational experts, everybody is going to be there and we are going to have a discussion on access, on equity, on affordability, and on financing our educational system.
