Free Senior High School (SHS) and Quality University Education in Ghana: The Role of the University Teacher
AbstractGhana’s education system has gone through several reforms in the post-independence period in the bid to increase access, ensure equity and quality at all levels (basic to tertiary). However, these goals seem to be a mirage especially on issues concerning quality at the secondary and tertiary levels. Against this backdrop, it has become imperative to raise relevant questions for the development of a new synthesis that is practical enough to allow for the necessary action to push forward the quality discourse which is a major concern among stakeholders. This paper intends to at least, serve the purpose of refreshing our memories concerning how we have individually or collectively, as citizens and academics, pondered over free secondary education, quality education and the role of the university teacher within the melting pot of the quality discourse in Ghana. It also serves the purpose of instigating a discourse on teachers’ role in ensuring quality education.
