Free SHS: Let parents foot some of the bill, the Presbyterian Church advises Akufo-Addo

The Free Senior High School (SHS) Programme should cover some of the expenditures, according to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, for "some" parents who are prepared and willing to contribute to their children's education.

Despite applauding President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his determination to uphold the Programme despite an impending bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Church claimed it is obvious there are enormous budget deficits, making it difficult for government to meet all Programme requirements.

According to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, "There are many parents who are capable and eager to pay to the education of their children, thus the state can shed off some of these costs for those who are capable of carrying them to do so."

This was said in a statement made following the Church's 22nd General Assembly.

The 22nd General Assembly, with the theme "Christ in you, the Hope of Glory," took place from Wednesday, August 10, through Sunday, August 14.

Corruption, economic hardship, perceived injustice in the courts, and other perceived or actual inadequacies in the operation of the state were among the concerns highlighted by the Church.

It was gushing with appreciation for the government's implementation of the Free SHS and other pro-poor policies.

"It is undoubtedly commendable that the government has sacrificed many developmental needs to make sure that every child, regardless of family income, may afford secondary education."

It reaffirmed its dedication to the nation's progress.

The General Assembly pledged that "The Presbyterian Church of Ghana is committed to contributing its quota to the development of the nation."

"We decide to work with the government to fulfill the goals that our people share.

We promise to provide every worthwhile endeavor aimed at fostering national peace, stability, and prosperity our full support.
