Middle Class Families Can’t Get House Girls Because of Free SHS – Bawumia



Vice-president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has said the free senior high school programme has hugely benefitted the girl-child.

Speaking at the launch of the Konkomba Education Endowment Fund on Sunday, 7 November 2021 he said half of the 400,000 extra students who benefitted from the Akufo-Addo government’s free senior high school programme were girls – a situation that deprived most middle-class families of house helps – since the girls’ parents went for their wards from such homes so they could access free secondary school education.

“In fact, when we implemented Free SHS, a lot of middle-class families in Accra and the other cities were finding it difficult to get house girls because the parents of the girls came for them and put them in school”, he noted.

“So, Free SHS has been very beneficial for the girl-child in education”, said Dr Bawumia.
