Nana Addo’s primary education policy fulfillment 100%-IMANI Africa


Policy think tank, IMANI Africa, has said that, the New Patriotic Party administration led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has fulfilled it promise for the implementation of its primary school policies contained in their 2016 manifesto.

This was revealed at Manifesto 2020, which was organized by the IMANI Center for Policy and Education, a think tank.

Addressing the press, Research Consultant at IMANI Africa, Dennis Asare explained that this score was due to the extension of basic education to include Senior High Schools and Technical and Vocational Schools.

“In the area of education due to the free SHS policy, and extending it to Technical and Vocational Schools, they performed 100% in terms of achieving that promise. So in terms of delivering primary education which includes basic, senior high and technical high school, they performed very well.”

Other accomplishments in the educational sector included: successfully implementing the free Senior High Schools, restoration of teacher trainee allowance which was abolished by the previous government, additional support for Arabic and Islamic tutors, and increment in student loan trust fund budget allocation.

However, the NPP was scored 0% in the promise of collaborating with mission schools to enhance the participation of missions in these schools to facilitate development.

Also some campaign promises that were not delivered in their first term in office included; collaboration with private sector to provide WiFi services to SHS and the promise of each region receiving two state-of-the-art vocational and technical institutions.
