Franklin Cudjoe has questioned if the freebies shared ahead of the just-ended election played a role in how disrespectful SHS students in the Ashanti Region have become towards their parents.
According to the president of IMANI Ghana, he has picked up information from the region that children of school-going age no longer respect their parents because of the free education policy initiated by NPP’s Akufo Addo.
He went on to state that the reason for this new attitude is because they feel it’s the government that is paying their school fees not their parents, therefore, they can choose to respect or disrespect their parents who now play an insignificant role in the monetary aspect of their education.

As a reminder, the Free Secondary High School education policy in Ghana was a government initiative introduced in the 2017 September presidential administration of President Nana Akuffo-Addo.
