Contrary to claims that the Free Senior High school has affected the quality of education, Headmaster of St. Thomas Aquinas Senior High School, Paul Amoasi Baidoo has debunked those claims.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, the Headmaster noted that the policy did not alter the already existing teaching and learning practice in schools.
“This group is not different from the past ones, the same teachers the same topic… Free SHS or no Free SHS the system is the same, the quality has not been affected, some of the students are more than the past ones”, he explained.
Speaking on the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, Mr Baidoo stated that, the examination has been successful in his school adding that the school also ensured adherence to the Covid-19 protocols.

Students of St. Thomas Aquinas also indicated that they experienced no challenge during the examination.
