IMANI To Launch Tracker For Free SHS Policy
Policy think tank, IMANI Ghana, will be launching a tracker for government’s free Senior High School policy christened EQUINOX.
A statement from the think tank explained that, EQUINOX is a unified gauge with composite indicators that would assess the implementation of the free SHS policy.
The indicators include an enrollment trajectory, per capita spending, per capita spending efficiency, assessment metrics, resource disbursement schedules, and resource availability metrics.
IMANI in its statement noted that, government has decided to opt for a model of implementation of the free SHS that relies on expanded government subvention, fees abolishment and general taxation.
The statement said looking at a number of factors there is still considerable confusion about the underlying statistics and operational methodology, of the free SHS.
