The positives of Free SHS must outweigh its challenges – Deputy Coordinator

The Deputy Coordinator of the Free Senior High School (SHS) Secretariat, Nana Afrah Sika Mensah, urges the nation to focus on the achievements of the policy rather than its challenges.

Despite recognizing issues like food shortages in some schools, she contends that the benefits of the policy surpass its drawbacks.

During an interview with Nii Larte Lartey on Eyewitness News on Citi FM, she stressed that the policy has significantly benefited children from underprivileged backgrounds.

Emphasizing the need to highlight the positive aspects over the negatives, she expressed gratitude for the opportunities the Free SHS has provided to students from less privileged communities.

She stated, “Free SHS has truly been instrumental for our country.

Without it, individuals like my siblings wouldn’t have access to quality education. Despite facing challenges, we should prioritize the positive impact and make it outweigh the difficulties encountered by the secretariat.”

Mensah emphasized the crucial role of Free SHS in granting education access to those in less endowed or underprivileged communities, asserting that, without it, many individuals would lack the means to support their children’s education.

“Free SHS has really helped us as a country and then maybe had it not been the Free SHS people like my siblings out there wouldn’t get access to quality education. So even though we have challenges, we should rather make the positives outweigh the challenges we are facing as a secretariat.”

“We’ve given people access to education. People from the less endowed communities or people who are less privileged in the communities had it not been for Free SHS, they would not get the opportunities to foot bills for their wards,” she stated.
