Mahama vows to tackle Free SHS challenges if elected president. Explore his proposed solutions for education reform.

John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the opposition, has stated that if a future NDC government comes into power, addressing the challenges related to the implementation of the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy will be a top priority.

This commitment arises amidst growing concerns regarding both the execution and funding aspects of the policy.

During a meeting with representatives from various teacher unions, including the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Mr. Mahama outlined plans to strengthen the education sector.

Mahama expressed his intention to convene a stakeholder forum on education within his first 100 days as president to gather input on enhancing and ensuring the delivery of quality education.

“Within the first 100 days of me becoming president, we will hold a stakeholder dialogue on education. It will have as part of its focus the implementational bottlenecks of the Free SHS, but it is also going to deal with how we can improve financing and teaching and learning at the basic school level and so at that stakeholder’s engagement, NAGRAT, GNAT, parents, students, educational experts, everybody is going to be there and we are going to have a discussion on access, on equity, on affordability, and on financing our educational system.”
