Incompetent people managing our education without any plan-CCT
The Central Regional Secretary for the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Mr. Amos Amoah, has opined that education in Ghana today is being managed poorly.
He said how to manage education in the country has become a major problem without any clear cut-plan for the sector.
Speaking to Kwabena Agyapong on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he said persons who are currently managing the education sector are incompetent.
He quizzed “what is the clear cut plan for education by the government. As we speak, there is no clear-cut plan for education in the country. Where is the plan? Every government brings in its own plan. A government says progressive free senior high. This current government says free SHS. If we had a clear-cut plan in place, there would be no manipulation of the system. With a clear cut-plan, we can not be controlled anyhow. With a plan, every government will pursue that plan.”
Mr. Amoah went on to state that we need to hand over the management of education in Ghana to technocrats and competent persons.
“We need experienced, competent and persons with the needed skills to manage our education sector. They can manage it well. With the politicians, they have no clear-cut plan for the sector in Ghana,” he added.
He was reacting to some challenges confronting teachers especially at the basic level and the lack of textbooks for them to teach the pupils.
He lamented that teachers are not treated with respect in the ongoing training for them on the new textbooks.
He revealed that the food provided for the training is an insult.
Meanwhile, the JHS teachers who were yet to be trained have rather been handed their textbooks.
