The Minister only spoke about strengthening the existing 6 year secondary school system (based on the 1987 Educational Reform;3 years of JHS and 3 years SHS) by resourcing the neglected lower secondary (J
HS) so that after 3 years of JHS and 3 years of SHS ,Secondary school graduates will have an experience of a true 6-year secondary school system introduced by the 1987 education reform.
We should be mindful not to confuse secondary Education with Senior High Education.At no point did the Minister in yesterday’s press forum that SHS was to move from the current 3 yrs to 6 yrs.
With the crucial role of the media in shaping public discourse & national conversion it is important for the media to be factual & responsible in their reportage. Kwasi Kwarteng, Spokesperson, Education Ministry
