It was all good when the Nana Addo led government introduced the Free SHS, which was prominent in their campaign until the double track system was also introduced where students are supposed to practically run a shift with regards to going to school.
It has been one hell of a splitting ear to an ear headache for lots of parents and honestly, there is so much involved even though it is meant to be free. The truth is, free is not actually free, it always comes with limitations. The Senior High School students are home as it stands and those in their second year are supposed to stay home till the first week in March to resume. Which means that those in their first year and third year are now in school.
Which also means that these second-year students have close to three months to be home doing nothing unless of course, their parents decide to admit them into many of these extra classes being organised by other schools. That comes with its own bills, food, transportation and importantly paying the classes fee. Tell me if this still sounds like a blessing in disguise and Afia Schwar is not in her right senses sharing her thoughts on it.
The outcome of these Double Track System is dreadful, especially with these young folks, their exuberance with their hormones flying all over. You may not like Miss Schwar for all the right reasons but she definitely hit the hammer right on the nail with this one.
