Ghana Education News-The Ashanti Regional Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Adomako has expressed profuse satisfaction about the manner in which the double track system has commenced in schools in the region.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper after touring some schools that are implementing the system in the Kumasi Metropolis including Kumasi High, Opoku Ware Secondary, Kumasi Academy as well as KNUST Senior High Schools, Mr Adomako said the new system had taken off smoothly.
The Regional Organizer said he was happy with the promptness students who have gotten admission had reported to school on the first and second days.
This, he noted showed the preparedness of both students and school authorities to ensure they support the new education system to function smoothly.
‘’I am highly elated to see schools I visited both in the first and second days operating the double track system smoothly’’,
Speaking to challenges he observed during his tour, Mr Adomako said the only challenge he saw was with the status some students been given since they were coming from afar.
This, he however noted could be addressed by the school authorities with the parents of the students involved.
He urged those facing similar challenges to report to the authorities at the respective schools to help them address the situation.
Mr Adomako asked parents whose children are struggling with their statuses to hurriedly report to school authorities or the Ghana Education Service outfits created across the districts for redress.
‘’I realized some of the students who were coming from afar had been given day status contrary to their wish but I urge parents not to fret and rather report any challenge to school authorities for redress’’, the Regional organizer calmly advised.
The regional organizer commended the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the introduction of the free senior high school education.
He also praised the President for endorsing the roll out of the double track system across senior high schools in the country.
The double-track system, the organizer noted has ensured many in Ashanti as well as others across the country got admission to schools of their choice to pursue senior secondary school education.
Mr Adomako also commended highly the efforts of the Education Minister and his Deputies for rolling out such a forward looking policy that has the potential of allowing every student who passed the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
‘’For me I see the President as a visionary leader and no wonder he chose equally visionary persons in Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh and Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum to implement these good systems in the free education policy’’, Mr Adomako passionately stressed.
