Legon students are protesting against the proposed implementation of a ‘double-track’ system

A protest against the proposed implementation of the double-track scheme to the university was held by some former and ongoing students of the University of Ghana Legon on 8 January 2021.

On January 1, 2021, as a result of the Free Senior High School policy, the University of Ghana announced that it would begin operating the double-track scheme to make room for the high number of students coming in. The ‘double-track’ academic calendar scheduled to begin with the school’s management in mid-January 2021 said it would deliver a healthy and uninterrupted academic year.

The purpose behind the scheme, the school said, is to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on campus among students, lecturers, and staff, according to the school officials, and also to reduce the burden of on-campus student accommodation.

This current arrangement has rubbed the wrong way for the university students who have staged a campus rally demanding the elimination of the proposed introduction of the school’s double-track scheme.

These boys, dressed in red and black with many placards, sang songs and registered their dissatisfaction with the latest declaration. They are wise enough to follow the CVOID-19 protocols, according to them, so a double-track scheme would do them more harm than good.
