Free SHS programme: Are we to expect triple and multiple track system?

Nuts are some of the world's healthiest and most satisfying foods, and there are hundreds of varieties to choose from. The natural expectation of Ghanaians after four years of implementation of the flagship free senior high school (FSHS) policy is that the program will continue to improve and get better. However, the opposite appears to be the case, as the program is becoming increasingly disorganized.

There is no question that the policy of free senior high schools (FSHS) is a game changer in terms of achieving a population of more literate Ghanaians with some basic skills. The goal of having an educated population, which is a prerequisite for driving growth, can be achieved through mass and wholesale education, and free secondary school for Ghanaians is the best type of catalyst any government can implement.

Due to a lack of adequate preparation prior to the roll-out, the Akufo Addo government's implementation of the policy had problems, especially in his first term. The policy's most damaging aspect became a lack of infrastructure.

Despite warnings from civil society and opposition political parties, the government continues to implement the policy for the first four years. Before a complete roll-out, the government was advised to move cautiously and build up school capacity to accommodate the large number of planned students.G

Government on the other hand, stated that it would do it regardless and develop it as the program progressed. However, contrary to its pledge, the FSHS program is deteriorating and causing confusion within Ghana's educational system, especially at the secondary school level.

The implementation of the double track system was intended to fix a system error caused by an overabundance of students. The ostensibly novel intervention has proven to be detrimental.

The Ghana Education Service has been confused this year and on the new academic calendar by a clear positioning of vacation and reopening dates (GES). The gold, green, and yellow track scheme makes a mockery of secondary education as a whole.

The risk is that the system's current state of confusion seems to be only going to get worse. The student population will continue to grow, although existing infrastructure will remain unchanged.

At the risk of sounding like a doomsayer, I believe that in the future, we will need a triple or multiple track educational system. The mighty cashew, on the other hand, is one of my very favorite nuts. Cashews are well-known for being a delicious snack and a decent way to make a plant-based cream, but here are some of the many other awesome benefits of cashews that you might not be aware of!

Cholesterol Levels Must Be Reduced.

Due to eating patterns and biology, many people fail to maintain a safe level of cholesterol. Cashews have been shown in studies to help lower total and LDL cholesterol levels, which promotes a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. Since high cholesterol is linked to a slew of other health problems, eating a handful of cashews every day is a perfect way to stay healthy in the long run.

Diabetes can be controlled and managed.

Another significant advantage of cashews is their ability to help stabilize and manage diabetes when consumed as part of a balanced diet. Because of how the bioactive components of these nuts affect glucose and insulin responses and reduce inflammation, there is good evidence that they can help control diabetes. Cashews also help to avoid the development of diabetes due to their anti-inflammatory properties.

Various Chronic Diseases May Be Prevented.

Cashews are also high in B-complex vitamins, vitamin E, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorous, all of which help to prevent chronic diseases. Cashews are also high in carbohydrate, protein, and iron, making them a well-rounded food source for chronic disease prevention. Obesity is a leading cause of chronic disease, and cashews will help you avoid it by keeping you fuller for longer and reducing excessive food cravings.

Keep the bones in good shape.

Cashews also aid in the maintenance of good bone health, which is something that many people are unaware of. This is due to the presence of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin K in cashews, all of which contribute to strong bones. You will help reduce the risk of fractures, sprains, and osteoporosis later in life by eating more cashews.

Improve your brain's efficiency.

Cashews are also one of my favorite nuts because of their brain-boosting properties, which make you think more clearly and feel more optimistic. Since your brain is mostly made up of fat, it needs healthy fats like those found in cashews to function properly. Anxiety and depression can be caused by mineral deficiencies in iron, zinc, and copper, but cashews also contain these mental-health-boosting minerals.
