Free SHS: Prempeh college sacks 51 students

The Prempeh College Senior High school in Kumasi in the Ashanti region has sacked 51 students for failing their promotional exams last term.

The students who were to repeat form-one have been asked to go home because they cannot be accommodated under the new Free SHS policy since they were fee-paying, and government no longer allows head teachers to charge fees for students at first year.

Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako Justice who has been following the development reports that the Prempeh college headmaster is worried over the action but has little to do about it.

Although some of the affected students have left campus, others are yet to leave for home as they have been shocked by the action.

The situation is no different in other schools as head teachers are confused over how to treat first-year students who were repeated.

Under the new education policy, school authorities are  directed not to take any form of fees from students who are enrolling into secondary schools
