Let’s devise ways to keep waiting SHS students busy-Francis Adomako

Ghana Education News-The Ashanti Regional Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rallied parents, guardians as well as stakeholders in the education sector to help keep the waiting batch of first year senior high school students on the double track system busy as their compatriots start lesson this September.

Speaking to this reporter, Mr Adomako said it is important that all in the country help in the implementation of the double-track education policy, an initiative that is designed to keep classrooms less populated.

The Regional Organizer, a University lecturer noted that it is crucial to support such a policy that is carefully crafted to enable all students who passed their Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) the chance to enjoy free SHS education.

He, therefore, proposed that while the first batch of students are in school as the system starts next week stakeholders help with the organization of vacation classes to keep the waiting batch occupied till they have their time to have lessons in November.

‘’I fervently plead as stakeholders in education, parents and other interested groups help with the organization of vacation classes to keep the students who will enroll in November occupied with academic work and also enable their parents work in peace knowing their wards are engaged in something worthwhile’’, Mr Adomako stressed.


Mr Adomako suggested that while schools are opened for academic work, stakeholders arrange with teachers they will engage for the vacation classes to start lessons in the afternoon when all school work at public schools would have ended.

The NPP organizer proposed the engagement of volunteer teachers by stakeholders so they can spend more time to teach the waiting batch of fresh students.

Mr Adomako revealed plans to involve all Members of Parliament (MPS) as well as District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) involved in this proposal so that all Ghanaian children who have gotten admission in SHS are kept in school whether they are on the first batch or second batch of the double track system.

‘’As a lecturer and an educationist I know how it feels to leave children idle at home and I believe all stakeholders will come on board so we get the students busy with academic work as the double track system takes off next week’’, the NPP regional organizer noted with passion.



Mr Adomako stated with the organization of vacation classes the waiting students will not be distracted from focusing on academic work.

The classes, the regional organizer noted will keep the students busy till they have their turn to enroll as first year students in November.

With the churning out of home work by their tutors and teachers, the lecturer envisaged the waiting batch getting busy at the house till they get to class the following afternoon when they attend classes again.

The vacation classes, Mr Adomako noted will keep the students fully concentrated to be able to follow proper academic work when they get their turn in November in SHS.

‘’We cannot afford to leave the students who are ready to enter SHS idle because that will be giving the devil a weapon to attack our children, brothers or sisters’’, the university lecturer posited.
