Ghana Adopts Okonjo-Iweala’s Father’s Double Intake Educational System

So inspired that the Government of Ghana is adopting the double intake system for Senior High School entrants starting in September 2018 to take care of the large numbers of new entrants due to the free Secondary Education Policy. Congratulations to President Nana Akufo-Addo and his team for being bold enough to do things differently!

The double intake system was first proposed by my father, Professor Chukwuka Okonjo, in the 1980’s when he was Education Advisor to the then PNDC Government of Ghana who also partially implemented this policy. Over the past 30 years he has refined the idea to include the double intake system at the tertiary level in his books ‘The Quiet Revolution’ (2000), ‘Nigeria in the First Decade of the 21st Century: Strategic Insights for Policy Makers’ (2000) and ‘Universal Tertiary Education’ (2017) the Chinese Translation of which is just coming out in 2018 as he turns 90!

Never too late and never too old to change the world! The lesson is – Never give up!
