It has accordingly, requested from the Government of Ghana, technical support and the design of a double track system to be rolled out for its secondary schools in 2023.
“I applaud you for the robust reforms that your country has embarked on and the success stories that are emerging. It is in this regard that I am writing to you to request for government to government technical support in conceptualizing and design a Double Track System that will enable Kenya achieve 100% transition for 2 cohorts of learners who will transition to secondary school in 2023”, a letter signed by Prof. George A. O. Magoha, CBS, Cabinet Secretary, addressed to the Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, in part read.
The letter which was dated January 31, 2020, further stated “I will appreciate if you can consider sending one or two officers to spend about 10 days in Kenya, preferably before the end of March 2020, to help conceptualize and design the Double Track System. Kenya will meet travel, accommodation and any other related costs”.
