Following the completion of the Common Core Programme workshop for junior high school teachers organized last week, the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has revealed on GTV yesterday that the accompanying textbooks for the Programme will be distributed next year.
Speaking to the host of Talking Point, the lucky Minister told his audience on national television that unlike the challenges facing Kindergarten and Primary school learners concerning the long delay in getting them government textbooks to supplement the Standard-Based Curriculum, public junior high schools will be provided textbooks the following year.
The teaching Minister disclosed that currently, distribution of learner packs for form one teachers to be used for the implementation of the newly introduced Junior high school curriculum is underway across the length and breadth of the country. The learner packs, he noted, will serve the purpose of textbooks whereas preparation, printing, and distribution of textbooks will be completed the following year.
Again, according to him, by the time learners in form one move to the next stage, the textbooks would have been readily available to be used. He emphasized that government can produce all the textbooks by next year. In a related post, the Minister said that price negotiation for printing government textbooks for basic schools (KG & Primary) is underway. Thus, in the next few weeks, printing and distribution of the textbooks will be done.
