Spokesperson of Ministry of Education, Kwasi Kwarteng, has reacted to a report that quoted the Minister of Education Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum saying that Senior High School Education in Ghana will be shifted from 3 to 6 years,.

 

He explained that the Minister only spoke about strengthening the existing 6 year secondary school system (based on the 1987 Educational Reform; of 3 years of JHS and 3 years SHS) by resourcing the neglected lower secondary (JHS) so that after 3 years of Junior High School (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.
