Ghana Education News: Our Education System: To destroy a nation tamper with their education. This is not far from the truth.
Our Education System requires you to learn nearly everything under the sun and pass an exam in all of them to progress but why pass mathematics when all I want to do is music?
The statement “To destroy a nation tamper with their education” is either done by our leaders sometimes without knowing. It has been two years since the new curriculum for Pre-Tertiary was introduced in Ghana for Primary and the JHS. Currently, textbooks have not been supplied and teachers at the JHS have not been trained. Are we not destroying our education in this regard as well?
This practice where everyone has to learn everything is also another challenge. Imagine a future musician being forced to pass integrated science, Elective Mathematics, and all these subjects.
There are students who are so much interested in reading history-related courses at the university yet, they have been compelled to stay back and pass a mathematics paper that will become “useless” once he or she gains admission to study history to the highest level.
To destroy a nation tamper with their education – The School principal in Singapore
It will be more useful to consider the programme a student wants to pursue at the university and to determine which subjects must be considered in grading them for admission purposes?
This is the basic story behind the letter a School principal in Singapore sent to the parents before the exams to advise parents and encourage students.
A school principal in Singapore sent this letter to the parents before the exams…
If you wanna destroy a nation tamper with their education…
A School principal in Singapore sent this letter to the parents before the exams…
The exams of your children are to start soon. I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.
But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an ARTIST, who doesn’t need to understand Math…
There is an ENTREPRENEUR, who doesn’t care about History or English Literature …
There is a MUSICIAN, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter…
There’s an ATHLETE … whose PHYSICAL FITNESS is more important than Physics…
If your CHILD does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t.. please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them.
Tell them it’s OK, it’s just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life.
Tell them, no matter what they score… you love them and will not judge them.
Please do this, and when you do…watch your children conquer the world.
One exam or a low mark won’t take away…their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.
To destroy a nation tamper with their education. This seems to be affecting African countries with Ghana is not an exception. Can you see it play out in our education system? It seems the masses have little to no way out of this system.
