Government has made available nearly fifty six million Ghana cedis to provide incentives for teachers to offer extra tuition to all (SHS) students after normal classes hours.

The amount which is made up of an annual intervention grant of 50 cedis per student is part of government’s effort to replace the extra classes fees hitherto paid by parents.

The payment of the fees does not provide opportunity for acceleration or remediation for students who cannot afford to pay.

Furthermore, the provision of incentives for teachers is an essential element of the free SHS policy which seeks to improve access to quality and equity education.

According to Deputy Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Adutwum the amount will be used to cater for extra classes of more than one million students.

He explained that the overall objective of the intervention was to ensure that learning outcomes improved through the development of an effective academic remedial programme for all students.
