The Member of Parliament of the 7th Parliament of the fourth Republic of Ghana representing Jaman North last year petitioned Ghana’s Education Service to approved computer science as a core subject in schools.
Mr Stevens Siaka addressing students of the Sunyani SHS to climax a 3-day computer programming practical training in Sunyani said it will be of big help if computer science is made a core subject from the Junior high level.
The training dubbed “Hour of Code” introduced the students to ICT for inventions, how to become computer application developers and also how they would choose their career path at the tertiary level with the effective use of computer knowledge for socio-economic development.
According to him, the future of the country lies in improved access to information and technology to the youth particularly students in Ghana.
Mr Stevens, consequently, advised pupils and Junior High School students to take computer lessons serious for their academic and professional progress.
