How Free Is Free Senior High School In Ghana?


The Free Senior High School (FSHS) program was a brilliant choice taken by the past government on the grounds of Free Progressive Senior High system where guardians/watchmen were somewhat paying for the expense include.

As a significant crusade guaranteed made in the general political decision in 2016 by this administration, it went to the acknowledgment of even a class one student that, the following NPP government will to be sure actualize this lead program without or with little difficulties that can be overseen.

The start of everything is troublesome however the level of guarantee showed and persuaded numerous that, it’s amazingly smooth program to be enlisted. One may state, in the event that you stop to dream, you stop to live is such a program.

Toward the start of this FSHS, Heads of foundations were endorsed for charging minor expenses to the degree that PTA demands were likewise halted. Without unmistakably characterized objectives, we are compelled to focus on movement and eventually become oppressed by it.

On Friday fifteenth November, 2019, the second cluster of FSHS understudies known as Gold track began their voyage in the second cycle foundation and out of the blue, they were met with installment. One of these schools is NEW JUABEN SENIOR HIGH in the eastern region


The said bill is as per the following:  Construction of latrine office for young ladies :

Ghc 50.00  Teacher Motivation :

Ghc 40.00  PTA : Ghc 10.00

 Exeat Card : Ghc 5.00

Absolute installment by each baffled parent was Ghc. 105.00. Furthermore, each parent/watchman was made to store Ghc. 80.00 as pocket cash yet this will be taken by the understudy whenever the need emerges.

The inquiry is, would we say we are reclassifying outright FSHS? I approach the Minister of Education , Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh to transparently pronounce that, FSHS is not any more FREE as thought or rapidly mediate to stop this training.
