Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has vehemently rejected allegations that educational standards in Ghana have fallen.
He says a series of innovations introduced by the government has seen a significant improvement in literacy at the basic level.
Speaking on the floor of Parliament, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum says education has improved in Ghana.
“I was also surprised to hear another colleague talking about how standards are falling, and my colleague asked a question about a change in the curriculum. The curriculum has been changed, and so many things are happening now, and it is the implementation of that curriculum that is leading to the improvements that we are seeing in a number of schools across the country.”
“Mr. Speaker, the literacy rate that we had in this country, which was at a point in time 2 percent for primary 2 students in terms of proficiency, has risen to 38 percent.”
