For two years now, Ghanaians at the basic school level have been learning without approved textbooks. This abnormality was due to a suspicion that, the content of the new textbook, which had been prepared according to the new curriculum, has been politically skewed towards changing the history of Ghana.
This change, per the suspicion, was to diminish the name of Kwame Nkrumah, and project the Dankwah/Busia tradition to the fore. This in effect will make the modern tradition of the Dankwah family, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) look good in the minds of the younger Ghanaian generation.
The above assertions remained an allegation until a book, which is allegedly part of the new textbooks to be studied, surfaced on Facebook yesterday.
The book of this alleged book, strongly gives credence to the fact that, the present Akufo-Addo administration is on the part of a dangerous and malicious political chicanery.
The textbook and its content, regarding the few pages seen, is a representation of the achievement of the Akufo Addo government, rather than a collection of historical facts, which the book sort to communicate.
Some have asked whether, this is a textbook or a party manifesto?
A textbook is a book containing a comprehensive compilation of content in a branch of study with the intention of explaining it. Therefore, in writing a book on the history of Ghana, the achievement of NPP and Akufo-Addo, the symbols of the party and any other policy that seeks to sell one party to the students is most unfortunate.
This is a campaign. Something that is geared towards polluting the minds of young, innocent children in basic schools. It must be rejected from the beginning. This is not right.
