Double-Track system too expensive – Kwesi Pratt

Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has asserted that the Double – Track System of the free Senior High School (SHS) policy is too expensive.

Speaking on Kokrokoo on Peace FM, monitored by Adomonline.com, he said the Double- Track System is too financially demanding of parents whose wards are expected to enjoy free education.

“When our children come home because of the Double-Track System, we cannot just watch them stay at home doing nothing.

“We ought to register them for private classes so that they can keep up in academics but the monies pumped into putting them in these classes are far more than what we would have paid as school fees for the old SHS system.

“It is far too expensive, taking into consideration classes fee, food etc.,” he argued.

In his opinion, a system that is putting more financial burden on parents has defeated the intent of a free SHS policy.
