The Double Track Education System kick starts today even though first year students of Senior High Schools go to school September 11.
When the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced the start of the system, it certainly did not go down well with a lot of people.
Policy Think Tanks like IMANI and ISODEC as well as Educationists and Teacher Associations including the National Association of Graduate Teachers, NAGRAT raised issues with the system.
The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition for instance called for the policy to be suspended, citing lack of stakeholder engagement.
Unlike the single-track system, the new system (Double Track Education System) is expected to divide the entire student body and staff into two different tracks.
This means that while one track is in school, the other is on vacation.
To begin the process, the Ghana Education Service (GES) on Tuesday, September 5, released the placements of 423,134 students who have successfully made it under the 2018 Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).
This number is out of a total of 521,710 registered candidates, meaning that 67,382 are yet to be placed under the system.
