The Methodist Church of Ghana has called on the government to review its flagship policy, the Free Senior High School (FSHS), citing the need to revise it despite its warm reception by Ghanaians. The government, however, seems reluctant to carry out a review, causing concern among stakeholders in education, including Dr. Clement Apaak, Member of Parliament for Builsa South.

In response to the Methodist Church’s call, Dr. Apaak stated that the President must heed the numerous requests for a review of the FSHS policy from various stakeholders, including unions, parents, and concerned Ghanaians. He wondered why the government was not interested in reviewing the policy to improve it.

For the most part, stakeholders in education and the general public have welcomed the FSHS policy, which has allowed many students from low-income families to access education at the senior high school level. However, the Methodist Church of Ghana has identified several challenges with the policy, which it believes the government must address. These challenges include inadequate infrastructure and facilities, lack of quality education, and inadequate funding for the program.

Despite these challenges, the government has been slow to address them, which has led to concerns that the FSHS policy may not be sustainable in the long run. It is essential to address the challenges facing the policy so that it can continue to provide quality education to students who would otherwise not have access to it.

The Methodist Church of Ghana has called for a review of the FSHS policy to identify areas that need improvement and address the challenges facing the program. The government must be willing to listen to the concerns of stakeholders and take appropriate action to address them. A review of the FSHS policy can lead to a better education system that meets the needs of all students in Ghana.

In conclusion, the Free Senior High School policy has been a welcome development in Ghana, providing access to education for many students. However, it is essential to review the policy periodically to ensure that it continues to provide quality education to all students. The government must listen to the concerns of stakeholders and address the challenges facing the program to ensure its sustainability.
