A staff of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has said the new standard-based curriculum textbooks for teachers and students in the country at the very least will be available before the start of the 2022 academic year.
Dr Kwabena Bempah Tandoh, the GES Deputy Director-General for Quality and Access announced this speaking on Asaase Break Fast show on the Accra-based Asaase Radio 99.5 monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh Thursday.
Asked when his outfit and National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) will announce the release of the new curriculum textbooks, Dr Tandoh said “I do know that at the very least before we enter the next academic year we would have the textbooks available.”
Meanwhile, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has said teachers can use the old textbooks for teaching as they wait for his outfit and NaCCA to provide the much-awaited standard-based curriculum textbooks.
“So maybe you have a topic that interests you in the old textbooks, you can use that to teach using the skills of the standard-based. The topics have not changed but how you teach has only changed” Prof Opoku Amankwa stated.
He said the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) in the shortest possible time will announce the release of the new standard-based curriculum-based textbooks to teachers and the general public.
