The Dean of Students at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), Dr. Mawutor has admonished the Government of Ghana to be serious about Education in this country. He voiced out this advice to reiterate Ghana National Association Teachers' (GNAT) call for textbooks after introducing the Standard Based Curriculum.
He said that the Government should take a significant portion of the blame for the lack of textbooks. He said, "how can you introduce a curriculum without the necessary materials. There will be no meaningful explanation to this. This is unacceptable".
The Lecturer's co-panelist, Elvis Darko echoed that, if this were to happen in some other countries, Heads will roll. He said, "big players like the Minister of Education, the NaCCA Boss and the Director General of Ghana Education Service should should be proactive. What they there for?".
"Heads must roll. The Executive Chairman of National Centre for Curriculum and Assessment should go or resign. We have been given all sorts of reasons as why the textbooks are not ready", he added.
Elvis Darko then said, people in the public sector are paid but Ghanaians do not see any significant output. "Things like these would not happen in any serious country. You have to give us what you are paid for".
