National Council for Curriculum and Assessment(NaCCA), Ghana Education Service completed training program for Trainers of Trainees, the Trainers of Trainees are yet to train teachers in the district level. The training for teachers on Common Core Program(CCP) has been postponed for two times, the training program organized for the Trainers of Trainees was boycott by the teachers who were subject specialists and head teachers later part of the training program.
The Common Core Program(CCP) Curriculum which is set to begin implementation on 18th January, 2021 has no textbooks.
Why Ghana Education Service in a rush to implement a new Curriculum which has no textbooks.
It took Ghana Education Service a year to get textbooks for the Basic Schools in the Country when they changed the curriculum at the basic level from BS 1 to BS 5. What's wrong at the Ghana Education Service.
Last week Ghana Education Service Released a letter signed by Dr. Kwabena Tandoh(Deputy Director Quality and Access) instructing schools to use the first eight weeks of Re-opening to recover learning lost, basic schools have lost two terms, can eight weeks complete the learning lost?
Students are going to be promoted without completing their previous class syllabus.
Ghana Education Service should do their best to Release prescribe textbooks within the eight weeks schools are to use for recover learning lost.
We hope one day Ghana Education Service will get textbooks, teachers guide before implementing new Curriculum.
Former Deputy Minister of Education Dr. Osei Adutwum has been nominated to head the Education ministry pending parliamentary approval. Dr. Osei Adutwum is the teachers choice for the Education ministry and more is expected from him.
