'I Don’t See Why We Can’t Touch Free SHS' - IEA Research Director On IMF Talks


Dr John Kwabena Kwakye, the Director of Research at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), has reiterated calls for the government to consider tweaking the flagship Free Senior High School, Free SHS, policy amid an economic downturn. “I don’t see why we can’t touch Free SHS . Policies that do not focus on human capacity development can be phased out,” Dr Kwakye said. The public sector needs to be downsized to be more productive so that we can remunerate them better,” Dr Kwakye added. He also touched on the need to reduce the size of government and aside from the Free SHS, consider reviewing some other flagship programmes.
