Rt. Rev. Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mantey, Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, has said the much-touted Free Senior High School (SHS) policy is now problematic and needs a drastic approach from the government to remedy the situation.
The clergyman said headmasters are struggling to manage their schools owing to funding delays, but they are afraid of being penalized by the government if they complain.
“Ghanaians must be cautious of free things; parents who can afford to pay must pay,” he pointed out during the 70th-anniversary celebration of Abetifi Presbyterian College of Education (ABETICOE) in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
He however applauded the initiative saying if not for the immediate challenges it has been riddled with, it remains one of the best policies of the government.
