Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has pledged that a future NDC government will prioritize resolving issues surrounding the implementation of the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

This commitment comes amid concerns about the policy’s execution and funding.

Speaking at a meeting with representatives from various teacher unions, including the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Mr. Mahama outlined plans to strengthen the education sector.

He announced his intention to convene a stakeholder forum on education within his first 100 days in office to gather feedback on how to enhance and provide quality education.

“Within the first 100 days of me becoming president, we will hold a stakeholder dialogue on education. It will have as part of its focus the implementational bottlenecks of the Free SHS, but it is also going to deal with how we can improve financing and teaching and learning at the basic school level and so at that stakeholder’s engagement, NAGRAT, GNAT, parents, students, educational experts, everybody is going to be there and we are going to have a discussion on access, on equity, on affordability, and on financing our educational system.”
