John Dumelo,an actor and a politician has open up holes into the NPP’s much-touted Free SHS policy by acknowledging that it’s a scam because nothing shows it’s free.
On his perspective, the government cleverly increased taxes in the country, so that parents instead of paying school fees used those monies to pay their taxes; a hint that Senior High School Education is not free as been promoted by the NDC.
Free SHS is not really free as they seem to be because we pay ambiguously through different sources, there is nothing like Free SHS”, he said.
The aspiring MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency Dumelo said, in any case, the government could have waited and built more schools, expanded the infrastructure of the various Senior High Schools across the country, train and equip extant current teachers and also employ more teachers before executing the policy because currently, people have lost trust in Secondary school education in Ghana.
Lots of Ghanaians have lost trust in the Free Senior High School Education because the government has interchanged the quality and quantity, the system is about enrolling the masses and not the quality of education provided,” he told Accra-based Adom FM in an interview.
