There won’t be accomodation challenges in Senior High Schools – Ministry of Education

The Education Ministry is confident that there will be no accommodation challenges in the various Senior High Schools following the abolishing of the double-track system.

The system was birthed in 2018 to solve the issue of congestion and create rooms to accommodate the projected increase in enrolment of Junior High School students into Senior High Schools.

However, after the double-track system has been abolished concerns have been raised about whether or not the schools have adequate facilities to accommodate all the students.

Mr Kwasi Kwarteng Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education stated that “If you look at the vacancies that were declared by the various Senior High Schools and TVET schools, they were more than 580,000. If you compare these to the students that were eligible for placement, that is around a little over 500,000. There will still be more room for the students.”

 “We thus do not envisage any pressure on accommodation. But of course, if there is any challenge of such nature, we will quickly address it.”

The Akufo-Addo administration introduced the double-track system to mitigate the accommodation challenges in the various senior high schools following the increase in student enrolment because of free education.
