CRUCIFYING FREE SHS; A VILE PROPAGANDA TO DECEIVE THE VOTER IN 2024
Raynelle Boadu opines……..
In the past week or two, joy FM, whether deliberately or otherwise has made it a point to run down the government’s flagship program “free shs” with lies, propaganda and half truths. Thankfully, the facts have been laid bare and propaganda “yaamutu”.
The truth shall indeed set you free but even then, you will have to accept the freedom or remain in the prison of ignorance.
Suffice to say, the free shs policy as shown by the stats and data has been a game changer, a paradigm shift of seismic proportions in our education sector. But that is not to say it hasn’t been without problems.
Indeed the free shs policy has had its teething problems and the efforts being made to fix and improve it are glaring for all to see. So to suggest, for one fleeting moment that a policy that has saved over 800,000 young people from falling out of school and secure to a large extend the future of the nation, be sacrificed on the altar of cheap propaganda is akin to nation wrecking.
We know the record and competence of the alternative (NDC) with respect to secondary education and education in general and it doesn’t inspire confidence to say the least.
I will choose a free shs policy that guarantees access to secondary education for all qualified students even if it means learning under trees or going on a double track or whatever problems it has rather than wait till after twenty years as suggested by “yaanom”.
Don’t give a dog a bad name to hang it…..free shs is here to stay and the good it is doing is worth all the support we can give it.
Let us be true citizens and not some vile propagandist spectators.
