Ghanaian Musician Shatta Wale has stated that he finds it difficult to understand the double-track system being implemented at various Senior High Schools (SHS) in Ghana.
According to Wale, he finds it difficult to understand because it was not this way when he was going to school.
The first batch of double-track system students began in September, 2018. And unlike the single-track system, the new system divides the total number of students and teachers into two different tracks. This means that while one track is in school, the other is holidaying.
Speaking about the new system, Shatta Wale explained that although the double-track system has been running for over a year, people like him don’t understand how it works.
“I don’t see how the double-track system functions when I was going to school it wasn’t like how it is. It’s confusing”.
The ‘Island’ singer also complained about how difficult it has become for students to readily mention the names of Ministers of State in school.
“Gone are the days when you can easily know the ministers we have in the country. Now go on the streets and people don’t even know them. The politicians are only confusing us,” Shatta Wale added.
Shatta Wale was speaking on Good Evening Ghana with host Paul Adom-Otchere when he was asked if he would like to receive first-hand education from the Deputy Minister of Education in-charge of General Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum. He however replied by saying; “Even if he explains it to me, it won’t work. They should rather make it easier for everyone to understand.”
