The Ghana Education Service  (GES) has announced that, come 2019, government will reduce the number of schools under the double track system by 300 schools. This means only 100 out of the current 400 schools will be double track enabled after the BECE 2019.

What is the source of Funding?

The government of Ghana has secured a $1.5 billion facility for the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GET Fund). This resource will be put to good use by upgrading and or providing essential infrastructure in the schools.

Mr Michael Nsowah who is the chairman of the Ghana Education Service Council made it known during TV3 analysis program “The Key Points” that the GETFund will be used to complete all SHS under construction. This will go a long way to deal with the reasons that led to the double track system.
