For the past few days people in the country have been talking about textbooks in the country. Even a member of Parliament has even asked the minister of Education to answer some questions about some of the books. The Director-General of Ghana Education Service has also come out to release a statement.
The Director-General, professor Kwasi-Opoku Amankwa stated that, GES has no intention of restricting the publication of textbooks in the country. The Director-General of GES also suggested that, NaCCA should regularly update the public on books that have been approved for use in schools.
The Professor Kwasi-Opoku Amankwa also stated that, the management of the Ghana Education Service is not considering capping the publication of textbooks in the country despite the approval of about 1,107 textbooks by the council for Assessment (NaCCA). The Director-General also added that, when the government was doing it on its own, it had some advantages and disadvantages. And the management think that, this is a much better process, however, the market itself needs to be educated on what a book is and what goes into a book.
The Director-General of GES concluded by saying that, the fact that there shouldn't be a limitation of the publication of textbooks means publishers and authors should undermine the quality of the contents in the book. And also, the management do not want a situation where you restrict people from what they read. Please share, like and comment on this article.
