The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has cautioned both private and public schools using unapproved textbooks to teach learners in classrooms to desist from such illegal action.
NaCCA warning comes after its attention was drawn to the use of unauthorized textbooks for teaching in (KG, primary and JHS) and also some publishing companies advertising unapproved books in the country.
According to the National Council, one of the numerous unapproved textbooks in the market for sale is ‘Golden History of Ghana for Basic 6’ published by Golden Publications and authored by Mercy Gyaa-Adiyah.
NaCCA following the ongoing prohibited act in a statement copied to Educationweb.com.gh has said it will soon embark on an unannounced visit to Pre-tertiary schools and punish schools using unapproved books.
The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment is an institution mandated by the Education Regulatory Body Act 2020 (Act 1023) to approve teaching and learning material for use in Pre-tertiary schools.
