The Director – General of the Ghana Education Service,  Prof. Kwesi Opoku Amankwa has publicly revealed that a review of the Free Senior High School Policy is underway.

According to Prof in an exclusive interview on JoyNews monitored by Honestynewgh.com, the review geared at determining which of the cost components government can relinquish to parents to pay.

“…we can do the analysis and then come up and say that, ok, to give Raymond quality education, it will cost this much. Within that cost, these are the items in the cost.

“Then we will all put it out there and say this item, we can make do of it, and it will not affect quality, this item, I think we can get parents to pay,” he told host of Upfront, Raymond Acquah.

Though the Ministry of Finance in a statement earlier this month indicated that the policy will not be suspended despite seeking support from the IMF, the  IMF will be concerned about possible lack of finance and the ability of government to sustain its expenditure.

Prof Amankwah added that they are nowhere near a conclusion but a key component of the review is geared at ensuring a cost arrangement that ensures quality.

“The review will determine how much parents will pay for their wards”, Prof added.
