During a working visit to the Ghana Education Service, the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has outlined his vision for the education sector.
The aim of his visit to the GES Headquarters was to share his vision for the education sector with the outfit that is in charge of pre-tertiary education in the country.
At the meeting, the minister thanked the GES for its contribution to the effective implementation of the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy in the last four years.
The Nana Akufo-Addo led government started the Free SHS policy which saw students accessing secondary education without parents paying for tuition, feeding nor clothing.
Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum also used the occasion to highlight the sterling performance of the first batch of Free SHS graduates at the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
In his view, the performance of the candidates presented for the 2020 WASSCE is a result of the hard work of teaching and non-teaching staff, the leadership of GES, and students.
Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum who doubles as the Bosomtwe MP said, “out of 2.1 million candidates that sat the exams from the 5 WASSCE countries; Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Liberia, 465 candidates obtained 8-As in total out of which 411 of them are students from Ghana, and curiously, products of the FSHS programme.”
Dr. Adutwum outlines vision for education
He further called on the Ghana Education Service to ensure they replicate the sterling performance of the students when Ghana presents the second batch of final students from the Free SHS for the 2021 WASSCE in September-October this year. He called on the service to do the same at the BECE
According to Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, his “vision is to create an education system that is second to none in the sub-region”.
The educationists added that his objective is to superintend over a public education system that can outperform private schools so that parents will not hesitate to enroll their wards in public schools across the country.
“It’s doable, but this certainly would need a sense of urgency for change,” the Minister in charge of Education told officials of the Education Service.
He called on the GES to introduce suggestion boxes at easy-to-locate places for its staff to share their ideas and make valuable recommendations on how the service can improve on the pre-tertiary education system in the country.
The minister also tasked staff of the GES to be worthy ambassadors of the pre-tertiary education system while embracing proactive reforms currently ongoing.
To realize Dr. Adutwum’s vision for education, all hands must be on deck.
