According to Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang, the duration is not the only critical factor to consider when making efforts to improve the quality of education. The Minister of Planning, Professor Gyan Baffour revealed that the government is monitoring the current SHS system to inform a possible review back to four years.
The NPP administration under President John Kufuor introduced the 4-year Senior High School programme in 2007. However, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) reverted to the 3-year system after it regained power in 2009.
But Professor Jane Nana Opoku Agyemang said, “There are many quality indicators, and if what we want is quality, then we have to ask ourselves so many questions. Even if you want to tweak any part, why isolate only the duration. What about the other part? Whether you did 4 years or 3 years, history has told us that there were some schools that did well anyway."
