Double-Track SHS :Deputy Edu. Minister rejects MoE’s decision to run extra Classes at Churches, says it was a Slip of Tongue



The Deputy Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has rejected the decision of the Education Ministry to organize extra classes for Students in Church halls or private schools while at home. Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum said that statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education was a slip of tongue.

He emphasized that government had no intention to organize extra classes for Students who shall be on break, but rather the responsibility of the parents.

Deputy Public Relations Officer of GES, Isaac Asiedu Odei in an interview on Accra based TV3 disclosed that the extra classes will be held in church halls, community centers and private schools across the country for students on vacation.

The Deputy Minister, in an exclusive interaction with host of Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, Kwami Sefa-Kayi, was emphatic that “it is not government’s policy to organise vacation classes for students. It is the parents’ duty and responsibility and government is not going to take that away from them”.

Describing the PRO’s comment as ‘a slip of tongue’, Dr Adutwum believed the new system will offer students more instructional and contact hours with teachers.
Double-Track Senior High School System

The Double Track system creates a calendar of two semesters in a year for the SHS 1 class, containing 81 days per each semester and 41 days of vacation for a sandwich class.

Over 8,000 teachers are being recruited to handle the sandwich classes, so teachers are not be deprived of their holidays.

Under the new system, teaching hours are increased from six hours per day to eight hours per day.

Teaching hours are expected to increase from 1,080 hours per year under the current single-track system, to 1,134 hours per year under the proposed double-track system.

Government has also indicated that the system will last for between five to seven years, to allow it address the accommodation challenges in the various SHSs after which the schools will revert to the normal education calendar.
