The speaker of Parliament Right Honorable Alban Sumani Bagbin has made a loadable remarks on Ghana's educational systems and its frameworks.
The speaker cited that the educational system of the country only focus on the development of students or pupils mental state to the neglect on some key areas that will serve as a drive for the country's development, which is the creativity aspect of education. He said, the central focus has always been teaching the students to write exams and all that they are taught is targeted towards examination.
The speaker indicated that it's about time the arena of the issues are settled rightfully and draw a concept that will ensure the development of students' creativity and the mental stature as well. The speaker drew a notion that developing the mental stature of students alone will only results in memorizing to write exams and after then the student is set back to what many would describe as "factory reset" - meaning everything vanishes right after the examination since he or she was solely prepared for exams.
Whether his assertions are true or not, the question is, since when did this structure of education begin? And what did the country do about that and perhaps what does the country intend to do going forward? Make your suggestions in the comment section.
