Implementation of the Free Senior High School will boost Northern Scholarship to enhance quality teaching and learning; that is according to the Deputy Education minister for education in charge of secondary and tertiary education.
Dr. Osei Yaw Adutwum told journalists in an interview in Tamale, the Free SHS is a comprehensive package that will build on the northern scholarship hence no need for parents and students to fear.
He was in Tamale to sensitise government officials including regional ministers from Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions, NPP communicators and the media on the implementation of free SHS.
“The Free Senior High School policy is coming to strengthen the northern scholarship because there are many things that the free senior high school policy brings that was not originally part of the northern scholarship. I’m sure you were excited that monies are going to the schools before the schools are reopened – that is exciting. So the free senior high school policy is going to strengthen northern scholarship. It is not going to diminish it.” He stressed.
