Prof Karikari said, the component of policy must be reviewed aspect be considered for parents to bare some of the cost to reduce the burden and challenges facing the schools which government couldn’t
Parents are ready to pay, if there is a way that parents should allowed to pay something to support as well, build the Free SHS so there must be some kind of review, he made this during the outdooring of the Banka Education Development Association and donation of football equipment and sports facilities as part of SRC week celebration.
