I don't recall ever hearing the term "Pasco" as a student, but I passed all of my tests with flying colors. So many people have been ruined by social media in recent years. It may surprise you to learn that most current kids bring their phones to school, and that when a tutor is busy in front of the class, some pupils will be surfing the internet, neglecting the classroom activities for which their parents have paid. Over the years, this has been the leading cause of exam failures.
The government of Ghana recently announced that a massive GHC 34,800,000 will be spent to purchase solved past problems for all government schools across the country. Kingdom Books And Stationery, according to sources, sells each textbook for GHC 78 per unit. On the 14th of this month, Education Minister Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum revealed the government's plan to buy past questions for students on the floor of parliament.
Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, a former education minister, was not pleased with the government's decision to spend so much money when it could have been utilized to create more schools. She stated that kids should be well groomed, and that good outcomes cannot be obtained by purchasing old questions for our students. We may accomplish this by assisting teachers and implementing all relevant procedures. She expressed herself.
Students in top schools did not have many problems acquiring access to prior questions, according to the current minister who spoke in parliament, but students in smaller schools do, and they require assistance.
For the 2021 WASSCE students, 446,958 past questions will be purchased at a cost of GHC 78 per unit.
Tilapia the Cartoonist, as a concerned citizen of this country, cannot keep his drawing tools idle as he creates an artwork to discuss the government's decision to spend an unprecedented amount of money to acquire past questions for pupils. How confident are we that an overwhelming majority of kids will pass with flying colors?
