The Ministry of Education has said that all is set to roll out a full stream Free Senior High School policy, which begins next month.

Deputy Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum in an interview, said 470,000 first year students would be expected to enroll in all public schools under the Free SHS this year. This he said would bring the total number of students in public SHS to about 1.2 million nationwide.

Dr. Adutwum said the academic year will have Form 1-3 students all under the programme. He said government has budgeted for all logistics needed for this academic year.

The Deputy Minister said the Ghana Education Trust Fund, (GET-Fund) will cater for the infrastructure development of schools, thus allowing government to focus on the real needs of the students.
