Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) manifesto committee, Prof Kwaku Danso Boafo says the NDC when elected will progressively abolish the double-track system.
Prof Boafo who was speaking in an interview on Joy News said, “We will get to a point where it will no longer to be there, the purpose of high school education is to provide students with quality education, under the present circumstance, the students are not getting this quality education, so to solve this we need to expand infrastructure to accommodate more students who are currently engaged in the double-track system and that will be done progressively.”
Vice Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemeng made the promise at their manifesto launch.
“We have every plan and desire to make the free SHS much better by ensuring that numerous challenges are addressed and that higher operational and academic standards are introduced and sustained. To do this, we will abolish the double-track system,”
The double-track system was introduced by the government as a result of the implementation of the Free SHS policy which lead to an increase in the number of SHS admissions. In order not to deny any student, the government introduced the Double Track System which allows students to go to school in two sessions, thus The Green Track and The Gold Track.
