“Needy” Pupils Can Now Attend First-Grade Schools Without Following The Rules Thanks To Free SHS, According To Schwarzenegger

Afia Schwarzenegger, a socialite from Ghana, has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for enacting the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy in Ghana, which has expanded access to education.

She claimed that secondary education is now more equitable because to the Free SHS program, which enables all qualified students to gain knowledge and improve their quality of life.

She emphasized how the program democratizes education by allowing talented but underprivileged children to attend prestigious institutions like Prempeh College and Achimota School.

“Free SHS has made it possible for every child to get an education. It’s benefiting my security personnel’s children as well. In the past, attending institutions like Kumasi High, Prempeh College, Achimota School, or Adisadel College was unattainable for those without money.

“Those schools used to be exclusive to the wealthy, but Akufo-Addo’s Free SHS policy allows even needy kids from less fortunate homes to attend Adisadel College. “To get into these schools eight years ago, it was all about who you knew and what you had,” the woman recalled.

Parents and other supporters of the Free SHS policy have praised it for increasing enrollment and giving underprivileged pupils access to school.

Despite its achievements, some politicians and educators have called for a review to address problems like infrastructure deficiencies in order to make even bigger gains.

However, the administration has refused to budge on these requests, stating that the policy would be adjusted as needed.
