Africa Education Watch after Akufo-Addo appointed a new Education Minister for his second term government called for the fast track of constitution of the Ministry of Education governing boards for education sector Agencies.
EduWatch in a statement copied to EducationWeb.com.gh said the need for strategic directions by the board of agencies under the Education Ministry is crucial to continuous and successful management of the reform process.
The Education Watch said seven months in President Nana Akufo-Addo’s second term of Office with the Ministry of Education (MoE) not having a Governing Board is a horrible situation affecting the country’s education sector.
“Ghana’s education sector is in the middle of an education reform which is without challenges, especially in the new standard base curriculum roll-out process,” the Education Think Tink stated in the release.
The Education Policy Research and Advocacy Organization added “this delay is affecting the timely execution of government’s TVET reforms, including free TVET programme.”
According to the Watch, the delay has raised questions on whether prospective students in Technical and Vocational Institutes (TVIs) will enjoy free TVET in the next academic year.
EduWatch following the above has called on His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo and the Ministry of Education to expedite action on the constitution of all governing boards in the education sector for needed strategic leadership.
