Kenya’s Ministry of Education has requested the assistance of its Ghanaian counterpart to run a double-track system.

Kenya is implementing a transition for two cohorts of learners who will transition to secondary school in 2023.

A letter written to the Minister of Education Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh requests government-to-government technical support.

“I applaud you for the robust reforms that your country has embarked on and the success stories that are emerging,” the letter signed by Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary, Professor George A. O. Magoha, said.

“It is in this regard that I am writing to you to request for government to government technical support in conceptualizing and designing a Double Track System that will enable Kenya to achieve 100 transition for 2 cohorts of learners who will transition to secondary school in 2023.”

Kenya wants at least one technocrat, whose travel, accommodation and other related costs will be taken care of, to spend about 10 days to help conceptualise and design the system.

The East African nation wants the delegation preferably before the end of March 2020.

Ghana’s double-track system was introduced after enrollment in senior high schools shot up due to the introduction of Free SHS by the government.
