You Can't Spend Many Years In School & Say You're Going To 'Chew And Pour '-Fmr. Education Minister

Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, the former Minister for Education under the erstwhile administration has said that, one cannot spend so many years in school only to go and do 'chew and pour'.

Speaking to joy news, the first female Vice Chancellor of UCC made a solid point that, if one of going to school only to do chew and pour, then it is better that individual stays home.

In her own words, the former Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast said:

“ When people talk about 'chewing and pouring ', sometimes it looks to me, they haven't understood what they are being taught, because, you're being taught something so that you use it and that is where innovation comes in. That is where new ideas come in because you're applying what you've been taught. So if you're busy learning it, as we say 'by heart' then you haven't learned much."

Prof. Jane believes the attitude of many Ghanaian students in practising 'chew and pour' in examination should be looked at for the second time.

She as well believes the right assessment tools should be used, the pedagogy and medium of instruction should be looked at in order to discourage many students from practising 'chew and pour' for examination purpose only. Watch the video here.
