Kenya’s Ministry of Education has requested the assistance of its Ghanaian counterpart to run a double track system.
Kenya is implementing a transition for two cohorts of learners who will transition to secondary school in 2023.
A letter written to Minister of Education Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh and sighted by 3news.com requests a government-to-government technical support.
“I applaud you for the robust reforms that your country has embarked on and the success stories that are emerging,” the letter signed by Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary, Professor George A. O. Magoha, said.
“It is in this regard that I am writing to you to request for government to government technical support in conceptualizing and designing a Double Track System that will enable Kenya achieve 100 transition for 2 cohorts of learners who will transition to secondary school in 2023.”
Kenya wants at least one technocrat, whose travel, accommodation and other related costs will be taken care of, to spend about 10 days to help conceptualise and design the system.
The East African nation wants the delegation preferably before end of March, 2020.
Ghana’s double track system was introduced after enrollment in senior high schools shot up due to the introduction of Free SHS by the government.
