Ghana’s current Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has said the office of every school headmaster in the country must have the portraits of the President and the Education Minister in his office to show to students.
The pictures Dr. Adutwum in an interview with 3FM’s Dzifa Bampoh monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said will enable the students and Ghanaians to know better the faces of the two prominent personalities.
Asked how the image of the President and Education Minister contribute to teaching and learning, the Bosomtwe Member of Parliament said it will encourage the students to appreciate the country they are in as a child.
“They could not understand who you are so you have to start and ask who the President of Ghana is. Some of them will get it right and others will get it wrong and then you have to drill down to appreciate who you are.”
“Once they get to know who you are they get excited. If you go to most public offices you see the president picture, the coat of Arms, civics. It gets you to appreciate the country that you are growing up in as a child.”
The teaching Minister furthered that it is important for Headmasters to let students know who that picture they see, one day it will be their picture.
