Students brandish placards praising Free SHS

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has refuted reports that the Free Senior High School policy (Free SHS) is being reviewed.

A cross-section of the media had earlier quoted the director general of the Ghana Education Service Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa as having said the policy is under review.

But the GES said it is not undertaking any review of the Free SHS policy and that it does not have the mandate to do so.

In a statement, the GES said: “For the avoidance of doubt the GES is not undertaking any review of the FSHS. Any such review of the FSHS policy is the sole prerogative of the president and the government.”
