Second Year SHS Students to Benefit from Free Tuition in 2018/19 Academic Year
The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo has indicated that the Second year students at the Senior High School will not be expected to pay for their education from September this year.
According to the President, his government will extend its flagship Free Senior High School policy to second year students beginning next academic year.
The president made this revelation at a durbar in Busunya in the Nkoranza North District of the Brong-Ahafo Region as part of activities marking his 3-day tour of the area, saying “Free SHS has come to pass. In September, second year students will be rolled onto the programme.”
The free SHS programme which was rolled out in September 2017 has been fraught with some challenges.
The government has however given the assurance that the programme will be sustained despite the challenges.
