A research conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, have shown that , the double track Senior High School (SHS) education system, has turned out to be the most disliked policy of the Nana Addo led government
The research which sampled about 5,000 Ghanaians nationwide touched on some areas including economy, education, campaign promises, government policies and programmes among others.
The researchers found out that one of government’s most fiercely pushed policy double track system is the most disliked policy among the electorate.
At the same time, one popularly supported policy; the fight against galamsey, is now the second most disliked of government’s policies.
The findings also show that the voters dislike the government’s drones for the health program, while a significant number expressed disappointment at the government’s job creation efforts.
Per the results presented by Head of Political Science Department, Dr. Maame Gyekye-Jandoh on Wednesday, “The government’s most liked policy and most disliked policy are related to education. And that is what I find interesting. For the second year running, free SHS has been most supportive of government policies. And yet only 33% said the double track was good, and 45% said it was not.”
“Indeed, double track is said to be the most disliked government program even though it was meant to facilitate free SHS by giving greater access; so a dilemma of the sort,” she added.
