The government has been urged to reintroduce the Presidential Special Initiative (PSI) on Distance Learning for Senior High School students which was introduced by the John Agyekum Kufuor administration.
The proponent, a Principal Economics Officer at the Ministry of Finance, Mr Atta Dabone Snr said the re-introduction would cater for the void created by the double-track policy.
The Distance Learning policy was principally created by the then administration to in its effort to bridge the illiteracy gap.
Currently students under the Gold track in school whiles those the Green track are on vacation and the government has assured parents that the shift system will not affect the quality of education at the high school level but Atta Dabone believes that the reintroduction of the PSI policy will serve as a refresher programme for the students at home.
He added that the PSI will support both the SHS students and others who missed the opportunity to go through such high school pieces of training, adding that the PSI must be taken on both radio and TV prime hours.
Mr Atta Dabone Snr who is also an Entrepreneur made the proposal in an interview with Adom News when he received a Global Business Excellence Commitment (Glo-BC) Award 2018 organised by the Global Business Confederation base in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Glo-BC is awarded by the Global Business Confederation, an international organisation that recognises and drives the advances of outsourcing business, entrepreneurs and corporate executives around the world.
The Confederation is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and has agencies in over 20 countries.
Commenting on the award, Mr Dabone Snr, who is also the Deputy Board Chairman of Foklex Media Awards, said although he is humbled by the recognition, it will firm his resolve to use entrepreneurial skills impact lives in Ghana.
