The Institute for Interdisciplinary Research and Consultancy Services (IIRACS) of the University for Development Studies (UDS), is recommending to government through the Ministry of Education to ensure that there is a cut off points for beneficiary students of the Free Senior High School system before admission instead of mass enrollment of students from the junior high school to senior high school.
The University is also recommending that students who do not pass the Basic Education Certificate Examination BECE, be supported to re-write the exams.
This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of a two day Annual Harmattan School organized by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research and Consultancy Services, of the University for Development Studies, in Tamale.
The school discussed topics including Policy Alternatives to Double Track System, Refocusing Education/Training to address Youth Unemployment and Sustainability of Youth Employment Initiatives with focus on the Nations Builders Corps (NABCO).
Executive Director of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research and Consultancy Services, Dr. E. S Mahama, who read the communiqué, said national development cannot be achieved without quality education.
