JHS, SHS duration has not changed – Adutwum


A Deputy Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has refuted claims that the duration for the Junior High School (JHS) and the Senior High School (SHS) education has been changed by the government.

The Member of Parliament clarification is in correction to an earlier published article reporting that National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) have hinted that the JHS duration had increased to four years, while the SHS duration had reduced to two years.

The Deputy Minister for Education, in an interview with GhanaWeb, clarified that the National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) has not made such a decision.

Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum speaking in the interview said: “It is not true, people started a long time ago, but they (NaCCA) countered it,”.

He stressed that the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ministry of Education will maintain the three-year education period for both JHS and SHS students.
