The Paramount chief of the Nangodi Traditional Area in the Upper East Region, Nangonab Pariyeong Kosom Asaga Yelzoya, has commended government for the move to make the educational sector attractive.

He however, expressed fear that the move will drastically reduce the number of months spent in school in an academic year. The private schools according to Naaba Asaga should also be included in the programme since it is the dream of the government in promoting the private sector for the growth of the economy.

He added that the private schools have contributed significantly to the development of this country and ought to be given the opportunity in the educational reforms.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Parent Teachers Association, P.T.A, of Kongo Senior High School, John Atubiga, said parents will have a bigger challenge since they will need to engage their children in extra classes during their holidays which come with another cost.

He argued that parents are already financially handicapped and is afraid they may not be able to afford private tutors.

Mr. Atubiga predicted a lack of concentration and studies by students at home during the three months break and said the quality of education may not be felt.

Some students who were engaged in holiday classes by Edmund Rice Remedial Classes at Logre also shared the impact the new system will have on them, adding that they are likely to migrate down south and called on government to rather consider putting up more infrastructure to remedy the situation.

Some parents also expressed dissatisfaction over the double-track system saying that their children may end up at galamsey sites, get married or become pregnant out of wedlock.
