NDC WILL ABOLISH DOUBLE TRACK SYSTEM- KOFI ADAMS
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will end the shift system in his first year in office, Mr. Kofi Adams, NDC aspirant for the Buem Constituency has said.
According to him, the Akufo-Addo-led government is yet to adequately provide the necessary infrastructure and logistics critically needed to bring an end to the double-track system.
He further stressed that, the slow pace in dealing with the infrastructure deficit in the secondary schools suggests a lack of seriousness in ending the double track and may account for the failure by the Akufo-Addo Government to give specific timelines on when they would end the “annoying double-track system.”
Mr Kofi Adams reiterated that, “unlike President Akufo-Addo and his NPP, the NDC, through its flagbearer and leader, John Dramani Mahama has provided an emphatic and definite timeline to end the double track given the opportunity as President of Ghana.”
“We will abolish the double-track system and ensure that we increase the contact hours between teachers and student,” Mr Kofi Adams told Kwaku Owusu Adjei on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
The double-track system is a module under the flagship project of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), the Free Senior High School (SHS) program.
The system is to afford the government with the capacity to deal with a large number of placed students who will hitherto not have had the opportunity to access Free SHS as a result of lack of classroom and dormitory spaces.
The module groups students into two, the Green and Gold tracks, where at a particular time one group will be in school while the other will be on vacation.
