Given the school-specific Free SHS prospectus which has been characterised by strange and unnecessary items being required by schools, the Ministry of Education (MoE) has Good hinted ut will of introducing a national prospectus for 2023 1st-yr Free SHS students.
What this means is that students placed in any Free SHS effective the 2023/2024 academic year will have the same prospectus for 2023 1st-yr Free SHS students irrespective of the public secondary school he or she is placed in.
Introducing a national prospectus for 2023 1st-yr Free SHS students is the way to go as many Ghanaians have been calling for this in the last three years.
The call for this intensified in the 2022/2023 academic year.
The Ministry of Education in Ghana is introducing a national prospectus for all 2023 BECE graduates who will be placed in Senior High/Technical Schools.
This is to prevent schools from taking advantage of the Free Senior High School policy to charge students extra fees.
The national prospectus will list all the items that students will need to bring to school, based on their programme or course of study.
For example, General Arts students might only be required to bring a cutlass.
The Ministry of Education has also tasked a committee to work on an approved prospectus to be given to 2023 BECE graduates awaiting computer placement into various public Senior High/Technical Schools. This prospectus will be released even before the West African Examinations Council releases the 2023 BECE results.
The Education Minister has also stated that no authorities of government Senior High School will be allowed to issue self-made prospectuses to first-year students to be admitted in their school.
This year, a total of over 600,000 prospective Junior High School graduates who sat for the 33rd edition of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) are expected to be placed in various public Senior High Schools.
In a related development, the Education Ministry has scheduled the school selection for 2023 BECE graduates to start on 18th September 2023 after postponing the process at least two times. In all, BECE graduates will for the first time choose up to 11 schools which will be grouped into School selection sets 1 and 2 made up of 6 and 5 schools respectively.
