The System Is Not Working: Basic Schools On A Two-Weeks Vacation Despite Learning For A Whole Year Without Textbooks

The System Is Not Working: Basic Schools On A Two-Weeks Vacation Despite Learning For A Whole Year Without Textbooks

Basic schools in Ghana have been ordered to vacate today, despite the fact that textbooks have been unavailable for a year due to the government’s curriculum change.

According to GhanaCNN’s information gathered, pupils in basic schools have been told to report to school on May 4, 2021, which means they can only stay at home for two weeks.

The majority of basic schools across the country had a difficult term because textbooks and materials that were expected to be made available by NaCCA after more than a year of basic school curriculum failed to materialize, GhanaCNN.com research indicates.

Teachers across the country expressed their displeasure and requested that the various District education officers provide them with materials, but in a country where everything is politicized, teachers were forced to remain silent and teach what they knew.

Ghana is not serious about education; imagine what would have happened if the money spent on the 2020 general elections had been used to print textbooks for the so-called future generations, as our leaders claim.

Akufo Addo's Free SHS Student Sentenced To 15 Years in Prison After Attempting Robbery

For robbery, an Obuasi circuit court sentenced an 18-year-old Senior High School (SHS) student to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

Michael Dakorah, a student at Obuasi’s Asare Bediako Senior High School, is accused of attacking and robbing their victim of his motorcycle on the road between Kwapia and Aketekyieso in the Adansi North District with the help of an accomplice.

When word of the robbery spread throughout the community, he was apprehended by the youth of Aketekyieso.

Dakorah pleaded guilty to the charge and was convicted on his own plea by the court presided over by Her Ladyship Ms Joyce Boahen.

The Obuasi District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr. Martin Asenso, told the court that on April 8, 2021, the convict, a second-year general arts student, and his accomplice, who is on the run, hired the services of a commercial motor rider to transport them from Kwapia to Aketekyieso.

On the way, the accomplice dropped his slippers on purpose, and the rider came to a halt to allow him to pick them up.

He claimed that the accomplice immediately pulled out a substance and sprayed it in the rider’s eyes, and that the convict also pulled a knife on the rider and told him to flee or risk death.

According to DSP Asenso, the victim reported the matter to the people of Aketekyieso, and the youth staged an ambush on the outskirts of town, capturing the convict and transporting him to the Obuasi police station.
