NaCCA Warns Teachers, Threatens Sanctions

The National Council for Curriculum development and assessment (nacca) has in a press release dated 6th March, 2021 warned teachers and stakeholders of education in the country over the use of unapproved books for teaching and learning. 

The release which was signed by John Mensah Anang, Acting Director General of NaCCA states that they have taken noticed that some schools (both private and public, kindergarten, primary, junior high and senior high schools) are using unapproved books. It goes on to say that some individuals and publishing companies are advertising unapproved books across the country. The release specifically mentioned Golden History of Ghana for Basic 6 authored by Mavis Gyan-Adiyiah and published by Golden publication as one of the unapproved books. 

NaCCA therefore warns heads of pre-tertiary schools, both public and private, parents and guardians, publishers and the general public that it is illegal to use unapproved books as textbooks or supplementary readers. 

They go on to serve notice of their intention to begin visiting schools soon,and any pre-tertiary school found using unapproved books would be brought to book. They also warned that publishers of such unapproved books would not also be spared 

NaCCA is the institution mandated by the Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020(Act 1023) to approve all teaching and learning materials for pre-tertiary schools in Ghana 

The regulatory body goes on to conclude "List of Approved Books for Use in Pre-tertiary Schools - February 2021

This document contains the approved books for use in pre-tertiary schools (from Kindergarten to SHS) in Ghana. 

The list of books is also accessible on For further enquiries, contact NaCCA via [email protected] and +233302909071 between the hours of 8.00 am and 5.00 pm from Monday to Friday. 

NaCCA entreats parents/guardians, teachers, heads of schools and the general public to ensure their wards/children use the approved books since the quality of their education will be compromised if they use unapproved books. 

We hope that all stakeholders will cooperate with NaCCA to ensure for their wards "
