NPP Manifesto lacks Clear and Direction for Basic and Senior High Schools - Educationist

 Story by Stephen Nani

Educationist Councilor Daniel Fenyi has bemoaned the lack of clear plans and direction for Basic and Senior High Schools in the recently launched manifesto of the New Patriotic Party.

According to the Counsellor, despite the excitement being witnessed by Ghanaians over the Free Senior High School policy, there are some who are still worried about the seeming drastic erosion of Quality in the syetem.

He assumed that a lot of Ghanaians do not have an assurance that the current system of education is capable of producing great Engineers, Scientists, Teachers and other professionals of high standard.

"Currently, there is no strong curriculum running at the basic level. Two terms ago, children did not even write end-of-term exams. The study of Agric Science which is the backbone of Ghana's economy is outruled. Apart from Free SHS, everything else seems poorly implemented", Counsellor decried.

Comending the Speach delivered by Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum as the greatest Speach during the manifesto launch, the renowned Educationist questioned the how the NPP was going make the promise of internet connectivity in all Senior High Schools and Tertiary Institutions effective when only about 20 percent of senior High Schools have computer laboratories.

He charged the team who worked on the education aspect of the manifesto to go back to the drawing table and bring Ghanaians more tangible and appealing things.
