Free SHS brouhaha: Criticism must build up, not tear down biggest educational policy- Kwesimintsim MP

Free SHS this, Free SHS that: Ignoring the noise; acknowledging the challenges

Perhaps, it was a tad optimistic in hindsight, for supporters of the Free Senior High School policy to expect that the critics of the policy would be silenced by its successful implementation. When the policy took off in September, 2017, many of us thought the whole nation would unite to support the policy, on account of its manifest advantages to the nation’s developmental trajectory. That has not, alas, proven to be the case.

Ghana’s common core programme: A curriculum paradigm whose time has come

In an increasingly globalized economy, a country’s most precious resources are not extracted from deep within its bowels. It is not the oil, gold or cocoa that will, in the end, lead to Ghana’s economic prosperity. Our greatest and most critical resources are the men and women who lead our industrialisation efforts, turn the wheels of technology and innovation, run our businesses and cater for our physical and mental health needs and all the other constituents of our workforce. No nation has developed without a well-educated and dedicated critical mass of workforce to pursue its developmental aspirations.

Exploring Akufo-Addo’s Commitment to Education: Policy, Spending, and Outcomes

Before it rose from the first meeting of its first session, the eighth Parliament passed the 2021 budget statement and economic policy presented by the Majority Leader, Honourable Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, on behalf of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
